Plagues and Pleasures of the Salton Sea

This dynamic, occasionally campy documentary introduces audiences to the bizarre and tragic story of the Salton Sea, an environmental disaster in the middle of the California desert that someone tried to turn into a tourist destination. Filmmakers Chris Metzler and Jeff Springer give us a compelling history lesson combined with a crazy snapshot of all the colorful characters who still call the Salton Sea home. Narrated by John Waters. 73 minutes
