America Reframed: Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea

America Reframed: Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea

Tue, 10/15/2013 - 8:00pm

Once known as the California Riviera, the Salton Sea is now called one of America's worst ecological disasters: a fetid, stagnant, salty lake, that coughs up dead fish and birds by the thousands in frequent die-offs that occur. However, amongst the ruins of this man-made mistake, a few remaining eccentrics (a roadside nudist, a religious folk artist, a Hungarian revolutionary, and real estate speculators) struggle to keep a remodeled version of the original Salton Sea dream alive. America Reframed: Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea airs Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 8 p.m. on WXXI World.
