dc.description.abstractEulogy for the Dead Sea is a poetic experimental documentary chronicling the disappearance of the Dead Sea from the initial manufacturing enterprises dating back to 1920s, until 2017. The Dead Sea borders Jordan, Palestines West Bank and Israel. It constitutes the lowest place on earth and known for its therapeutic high sodium and mineral rich waters. Despite its name, the Dead Sea basin is a host to many wildlife species and is superb for farming. Unfortunately, due to the diversion of water from the Jordan River and mass mineral extraction though evaporation pools, the Dead Seas water reduction currently measures at 1.3m annually. Through sites of existing and abandoned infrastructure, marking its current and former shores, the film seeks to unify inter-national conflicts through the lens of ecology.
