    • Synopsis
    • "Oil Rocks" - behind the enigmatic name lies the first and largest offshore oil-platform ever built, a vast city in the middle of the Caspian Sea, built by Stalin in 1949.
      60 years on, "Oil Rocks" is still operational and the first western film crew ever receives access. Just imagine: 200 kilometres of bridges, thousands of oil workers, hundreds of platforms, up to nine-storey buildings, a park and sports field, nothing less then an oil-rig Atlantis, only real.
      Combining archive footage from the Soviet era and the exclusive new footage, the film tells the story of this timeless place and it`s inhabitants.
