New animation documentary by Joanna Kozuch.
Once upon a time there was a sea… Aral Sea. The sea that has vanished. And along with the sea, seaside life and work disappeared. Only the dead desert terrain remained here, and wrecks of huge fishing boats lying in the sand... and people who have been living on the shores of the dry port for years, dreaming of high water and longing to sail at least once again.
Once There Was a Sea... is a film about consequences of human decisions and actions, how they can affect daily life of one Uzbek town and its inhabitants. As the reporter Ryszard Kapuściński states it: "There is no such a nonsense human mind could not invent."
