En forudsigelig katastrofe

Jakob Gottschau, Denmark, 2005

29 min.DK/Documentary

The Aral Sea in Central Asia was once the fourth biggest inland sea in the world. But a mastodon of a vision took form: water from the Sea was to transform the never-ending desert steppe into blooming fields of cotton. But the vision had a serious impact on the surrounding communities.
The documentary is part of the international awarded series "Late Lessons from Early Warnings" which explores how we have been able to respond to warnings about the hazards posed by some of the greatest technological innovations of the last century. We have not always been that successful.
