ONCE THERE WAS A SEA… IN THE SLOVAK CINEMAS
Animated documentary by Joanna Kozuch Once There Was a Sea… will be released in the Slovak cinemas thanks to the distribution company Filmtopia. It will start on October 14, 2021 together with the film by Peter Kerekes 107 Mothers, that has just recently world premiere at IFF Venice.
Once There Was a Sea… is short animated documentary about the Aral Sea. Most of the changes in climate and landscape in the area of the Aral Sea are the outcomes of one of the worst man-made eco-catastrophes in human history. The Aral Sea is dying. The idea of the film Once there was a sea… came to mind of director Joanna Kozuch during her train trips through the region of Middle Asia in 2008 and 2014. The film is inspired by the place on the borders of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan and the stories and destinies of the people that she has met when I was exploring the disaster of Aral Sea.
