明日之海 Sea Tomorrow
卡特琳娜•蘇沃羅娃 Katerina Suvorova|2016|哈薩克Kazakhstan、德國Germany|89min|紀錄片|普

鹹海(Aral Sea)是中亞的一個內鹹水湖,位於哈薩克斯坦共和國和烏茲別克斯坦共和國的交界處。影片記錄正激烈消失中的鹹海。那曾經是全球第四大湖泊的地方,理應有遼闊的、宛如海洋一般的巨大水域,如今卻成為枯竭的小池塘和成片荒蕪的土地,地表上佈滿了等待回收的廢棄金屬和無邊無盡的飛沙走塵。導演以各種驚人的細節,讓觀眾看到在這片失去生機的大地上,有少少的一群人,例如老園丁,漁夫和水文生物學家,他們憑藉一股堅毅的力量、努力存活著,甚至試圖恢復昔日的鹹海。
或許,這不僅僅是記錄環境惡化的鹹海,這些影像還可能預示著,在未來的某個時間點裡,地球被荒廢的可能景觀,而此刻鹹海的居民,正是彼時仍不願離開的倖存者的集體樣貌。

This visually striking documentary closely observes the inhabitants of the post-apocalyptic landscape along with the disappearance of the Aral Sea that lies on the boarder between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Known formally as the fourth biggest salty lake in the world, the Aral Sea as we know it today is filled with rusty remnants of shipwrecks and haunted marshes of salt. In spite of the inhospitable environment, the people left behind remain surprisingly faithful and hopeful. They are
persistent in fighting for a better tomorrow and for the eventual return of the sea.
