The release of "Baltic Sea: Closure" by Folke Rydén

Today, November 25, the documentary film "Baltic Sea: Closure" is released in SVT's Vetenskapens Värld (Swedish broadcast). The film is made by Folke Rydén and is the last film in the ten-year Baltic Sea Media Project funded by BalticSea2020.


In the "Baltic Sea: Closure" we get a glimpse of earlier films in the project when Folke returns to the people and the environments to see what has happened. We will find out more about the cod, emissions from animal factories and new environmental toxins, but there is also hope of reduced eutrophication and cleaner water. The film will air on November 25 at 8 pm, in SVT. You are also able to watch the film in SVT Play here.
