About the Event
The film tells the story of bizarre Soviet irrigation experiments in Southern Ukraine that created
a slow eco-disaster, which continues today. Construction of the irrigation project began in 1972.
The goal was to boost agriculture in Southwestern Ukraine by rerouting Ukraine’s major rivers
and converting all salt-water estuaries into freshwater reservoirs. Sasyk Estuary was the first in
line to be converted to a freshwater reservoir.
