Plot Summary: Along the coast of the Black Sea in northeastern Turkey lies the small mountain town of Çamburnu – a place where villagers have thrived for generations on fishing and tea cultivation. A decade ago, this idyllic landscape was threatened by the government’s decision to build a garbage landfill directly above the village. Since its inception, the consequences have been devastating: the air is polluted, the ground water is contaminated, flocks of birds and stray dogs have besieged the village and the tea growers have lost their livelihood. Award-winning filmmaker Faith Akin spent over five years documenting the small village’s fight against the government sanctioned facility and the resulting disasters that continue to plague this former paradise.
