California: Paradise Burning
I went on a solo cinema venture this evening to watch Interstellar. Thoroughly enjoyed it, perhaps too much crammed into one movie. I think it could have benefited from being split into two films or even a strong science-fiction television series in an attempt to delve deeper into the story/science.
Since reading The Grapes of Wrath and learning more about the 1930s U.S. Depression era I was very interested to see the references to these events and how they can be broadened and entwined with the fate of all humanity…
and with that, this 7 minute vimeo documentary explores the current droughts affecting the Californian Central Valley which is putting the livelihood’s of the region’s farmers in extreme jeopardy. Australia has also been seeing an identical problem, particularly in Western Australia.
Drastic action needs to be taken.
People need to wake up.
