Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea

United States, 2004
Documentary

Synopsis

An inland ocean with a close proximity to the urban areas of southern California, the Salton once clocked in as a veritable paradise – many tagged it “The California Riviera.” By the early years of the 21st century, however, the Salton had dwindled to a decrepit ecological catastrophe.
