Open City Docs Presents: Sea Tomorrow
Director: Katerina Suvorova. 2016. Kazahkstan, Germany. 88min.
The extinction of the Aral Sea is one of the most disastrous human-caused catastrophes in the world history. It was once among the four largest lakes on the planet covering an area of over 26,000 square miles, but decades of over reliance on its tributaries for agriculture has turned it into an arid wasteland.
Sea Tomorrow takes us to this post-apocalyptic landscape where the sea is gone but the people are left: a fisherman who has no fish to catch, an old gardener with only saline soil to plant his trees, a hydro-biologist who does her daily studies in the mud of the former seabed and pirates who live in a shipwreck. The locals say that every 100 years the land renews itself. The sea is gone, but one day it might come back again.
