A desert landscape, as if from another planet. A few lonely, rusty shipwrecks. Low desert scrub grows around them to hold the sand together during the merciless storms. Aralkum, the Aral Desert, is the bare seabed, the last thing left of the Aral Sea. By weaving together different cinematic textures, Aralkum re-imagines the dried-up Aral Sea, allowing an old fisherman to set sail one last time.
Director Daniel Asadi Faezi and Mila Zhluktenko will be present in the screening.
