  Svetlana’s Story

 
In August 2003, the Ecological Society “Green Salvation” participated in the filming of “Svetlana’s Story” for the program “Sustainable World” (“Earth Report”, Great Britain). The film was shown on the BBC channel (BBC World) in November 2003. The film is focused on the problems facing the residents of the village of Berezovka, which is situated close to the Karachaganak Oil and Gas Condensate Field (Western Kazakhstan). Recent events in Berezovka have demonstrated that the local authorities continue to ignore the human right to a healthy environment in which to live.


Materials about the film are also archived on the site of the Television Trust for the Environment (TVE):
