ZAVTRA MORE / Sea Tomorrow

ZAVTRA MORE / Sea Tomorrow

The Aral Sea was still among the four largest lakes on the planet in 1960. Unfortunately, overreliance on its tributaries Amu Darya and Sry Darya for agriculture has dried it up. Actually, it is exactly what plans made by the former USSR had predicted, since the resulting marshes were to be used for rice culture. Now only 17.000 square kilometers, the Aral Sea is but a big pond. The boats that had previously played an important role in the region’s economic prosperity, now lie still in the sand like beached whales. The desert of salt that has replaced it is a hostile, unusable land. And yet, not everybody has given up.

KATERINA SUVOROVA, born in 1983, is a Kazakh screenwriter and director. She studied film in Moscow and Los Angeles and directed several documentary shorts before cowriting Mediastan with Julian Assange. Sea Tomorrow is her first feature documentary as a director. It premiered at the Locarno International Film Festival 2016. // Films (selection): Two Bicycles (2006, short doc), Boys (2006, short doc), Spare Stronghold (2007, short doc), W (2008, short doc), Zavtra more (Sea Tomorrow, 2016, doc)
