Director, Klaus Pas, brings to life political-economists Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo, intertwining their theories with gripping images and interviews from some of the world’s leading experts on the topic from all corners of the globe, including figures such as U.N. Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Dr. Jacques Diouf, Jean Ziegler, Olivier de Schutter and Donald Coxe.

A leading and up-to-date reference work on the food crisis, Last Supper for Malthus is unique it its presentation of long-term feasible solutions, and can be seen as more than a movie, but a tool in solving what has been deemed by many as the ‘Permanent Food Crisis.
