ARAL: THE LOST SEA

ARAL: THE LOST SEA (Spain, 2011, 25 min.)

United States Premiere Once the world’s fourth-largest inland body of water, the Aral Sea is now a notorious example of ecological calamity. Retreating over the last 50 years after the rivers that fed it were diverted for Soviet cotton irrigation projects, today it covers half of its original area and its water volume has been reduced to a quarter, transforming the climate of the region. The tainted water that remains has led to chronic illness, with climbing infant mortality rates and skyrocketing bronchitis and liver cancer. The international community was unaware of these changes until satellite images from NASA revealed the extent of the disaster in 2003. Narrated by Ben Kingsley. Directed by Isabel Coixet.

Introduced by Guillermo Corral, Cultural Counselor, Embassy of Spain.

Discussion with Carbon for Water filmmakers Evan Abramson and Carmen Elsa Lopez and Margot Stiles, Senior Scientist and Campaign Manager, Oceana, follows screenings.
