The film “Karachaganak: Children in Exchange for Oil” describes the tragedy that took place the morning of November 28, 2014 in the Kazakhstani village of Berezovka, when dozens of children were poisoned during morning classes. The poisoning was caused by emissions from the Karachaganak Oil and Gas Condensate Field, which is exploited by Karachaganak Petroleum Operating, B.V. (KPO). For thirteen years, the residents of Berezovka have been demanding that the government of Kazakhstan and KPO relocate the village away from its dangerous proximity to the Karachaganak. In December 2015, the relocation of the residents began. However, the authorities and KPO refuse to compensate the children of Berezovka for the damage to their health.
