Sea Tomorrow

Documentary | Kazakhstan, Germany | Katerina Suvorova | 2016 | 88 min | 12+

Competition

The film Sea Tomorrow is based on four stories from life of present-day inhabitants of the Aral Sea’s former coast: old Juken, who is raising an oasis garden in saline soil all alone, woman-hydrobiologist, who continues to study the remains of Aralsk city harbor's biosphere, a gang of jolly metal workers, dismantling the ships that sank into the desert for scrap metal, and one young man from a family of hereditary fishermen, from whose village the sea receded dozens of kilometers. They all fight for a better tomorrow. This is a cinematic journey behind the veil of a big catastrophe, where the worst has already happened, but people there are still people living there. Living and hoping to build a new life.
