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.
