This is one of the most beautifully crafted films I’ve ever seen. If you have the chance to watch this documentary, do!
Here is a photograph I took whilst I was there at the Salton Sea. The Salton Sea is a shallow, saline, endorheic rift lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault, predominantly in California’s Imperial Valley. The lake is approximately 525 square miles in size and is the largest lake in California, and it is not even supposed to be there. At the turn of the last century, an engineering screw up of epic proportions diverted the Colorado River into one of the lowest, hottest land basins in the United States. Everyone assumed that the giant inland sea they had created by accident would just dry up, but when it didn’t, real estate developers tried to turn an ecological disaster into an opportunity. “A miracle in the dessert”. But it is home to a darker truth. Watch this video and you’ll see what I mean.
