Renowned cult film director John Waters narrates this quirky exploration of the Salton Sea, the massive Southern California lake that was created by accident a century ago, became a popular desert resort and has since developed into a refuge for a community of oddballs. Written by
As someone who grew up spending every summer and holiday at the Salton Sea with my grandmother who lived there for over 30 years, I couldn't believe how this wonderful film made me feel like I was right back there again. The film makers captured everything real and true about this beautiful place and while wanting to cry, it made me laugh at the same time. I can't thank Chris Metzler and Jeff Springer enough for making this film, the sea needs more people like them to bring it back to the way it was. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cringe, you'll hide your eyes, you'll feel like you're there and you may fall in love with the place that time forgot.
I agree with the person who said this film should be a required viewing for all California politicians!
