Coming Clean About Baikal

Date: Monday, 27 February 2017   Time: 13:30 - 14:30
Location: 313 C

This Russian documentary film, shot in summer 2016, portrays the ecological crisis that has erupted recently in the coastal zone of Lake Baikal, Siberia -- the world’s oldest, deepest, and most species-rich lake.  Accompanying a scientific sampling expedition around the lake, the filmmaker features Russian and Japanese limnologists as they investigate the causes of severe benthic eutrophication and the mysterious die-offs of the lake's unique sponge forests.  Local citizens, government officials, and other Russian stakeholders are interviewed providing a rich cultural and sociological lens for revealing the nuances and complexities that face the Lake Baikal region as it develops economically.  The film is in Russian with English subtitles.  55 minutes.
