It will be held on the BRICS TV (Moja Media) partner channel
On Tuesday 28th June at 8:15 pm (CAT) local time, the international premiere of the "More precious than gold" documentary will air on BRICS TV (Moja Media) partner-channel, South Africa.
The sun shines so brightly here even in winter that you can get a tan. Stunning blue sky, sugar-white snow and "marshmallow" hills. In the 1970s, a gold deposit was discovered in the Okhotsk district of Khabarovsk Krai. Its exploration and development began in 2010. Both before and after the development of this territory has become an example of ecological compromise. Civilisation and industry adapted to the life of indigenous peoples and nature, and not vice versa.
In a TV BRICS special project we discuss whether gold mining is environmentally friendly, how industrialists are neighbours of bears and why people tie a ribbon to a tree when applying for a job.
"This is the second time the TV BRICS crew has travelled to the Khabarovsk region. Our first film, "Gold", was more about production technology. Now we decided to take a risk and chose the global theme of ecology. It was a very special trip, you could say an expedition: more than 30 hours on the road, eight flights in a week, incredible natural beauty and meeting amazing people. We would especially like to mention the hospitality and responsiveness of the Khabarovsk people: in Khabarovsk, in Okhotsk, in the village of Arka, in the Svetloye field and in the port of Unchi, where we were welcomed warmly and helped with filming. Together we made, in my opinion, an interesting and beautiful film with a deep meaning. We are glad that it will be seen not only in Russia, but also in other BRICS countries. This is possible thanks to the structure of our international media network," said journalist Ksenia Komissarova, the film author.
