The Grab

dir. Gabriela Cowperthwaite | Documentary | US/Global | 2022 | Liet. Subt. | 1hr 44 mins

THE GRAB is a global thriller combining hard-hitting journalism from The Center for Investigative Reporting with the compelling character-driven storytelling of director Gabriela Cowperthwaite, taking you around the globe from Arizona to Zambia, to reveal one of the world’s biggest and least known threats. Behind the scenes, the world’s superpowers are bracing for shortages that will trigger civil wars, topple governments and spark the mass migration of hundreds of millions of refugees. From China, to Russia, to Saudi Arabia, governments and massive business interests are readying themselves by grabbing the last remaining farmland and freshwater supplies in the world, as they quietly stockpile their arsenals… of food.  

The film has been called, “the holy sh%t documentary of the year” and “a sleek, complex international thriller, where nothing less than the future of the world is at stake.”
