TAC International Film and Video Festival Damming the Euphrates


In June 2000, the world media gave extensive coverage to the flooding of the Euphrates due to the construction of dams in Southeast Turkey.  As the water rose, it buried Zeugma, an important Roman city, and its high quality mosaics into depths of the Euphrates.  Raising debates around sustainable development, the film tells the story of these mosaics as well as that of the people displaced from their towns.
