Black Sea
Voyage Of Healing

Scientists and religious leaders meet to find the solution to the Black Sea in crisis.

A printer-friendly version of this page 54 minutes
Directed by Peter Davis
Produced by Harvey McKinnon & Peter Davis

This enlightening video chronicles an unusual symposium on the Black Sea in Crisis, aboard a cruise ship as it visits the countries of Georgia, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey, in a circumnavigation of the sea.

The Black Sea separates Europe from Asia, and is a great trading area. It has a rich history of human cultural exchange and a unique ecosystem, rich in biodiversity. For thousands of years people have lived off its bounty. But pollution from Europe's industries, carried by great rivers like the Danube, Don and Dniester, are killing the ocean. And on the human side, following the collapse of the Soviet empire, many of the surrounding countries are facing the future without a working economy or a functional system of beliefs.

The symposium was convened by the ecumenical patriarch, Bartholomew of Constantinople, of the Eastern Orthodox Church, in hopes of finding solutions to the problems of the Black Sea region. The participants included environmentalists, such as David Suzuki and David Bellamy; scientists, such as Sylvia Earl and Paul Ehrlich; writers, such as Neal Ascherson; and religious thinkers.
