CARLOS CASAS' INTERVIEW ABOUT "ARAL, FISHING IN AN INVISIBLE SEA"

Year:2010

Authorship: Carlos Casas

“Aral, fishing in an invisible sea”, produced by Fabrica and directed by Carlos Casas will be shown on Community Channel, a not-for-profit digital TV channel in the UK available to 21.4 million viewers and dedicated to highlighting social and environmental issues.

 
The documentary speaks about the three remaining generations of fishermen in the Aral Sea, and their awaiting and the everyday struggle to survive in one of the scarcest places on the planet. It’s about the life after one of the biggest man-made disasters.
 
Carlos Casas declared: “We wanted to portray the dying process of a sea through the three last affected generations, from the old fisherman, retired who lived the sea, to the adult generation who still survives through fishing in the remain lakes, till the desert generation that survives from nothing, trying to keep the traditions and hope of a return of a more hopeful future. It is a film about the process of death and strength and rootness of people connected to their land. Aral doesn’t speak about politics or ecology it speaks only about the human survival strength. Aral still lives as an invisible presence and memory of what is considered as one of biggest man-made disasters of our planet”.
 
The documentary has been presented at the most important international film festivals, and won the Best Italian Documentary Prize at the 2004 Edition of Turin Film Festival.
