“Over Troubled Waters” a cinematic and educational eye-opener

The cinematography throughout the film “Over Troubled Waters” is breathtaking

I attended the premiere of the new documentary “Over Troubled Waters” last night at the beautifully-restored Crest Theater in Sacramento. It was the first of 3 California scheduled showings and I’ll be writing more about the film and the water-related issues soon.

I have to say that this is a “must see” film for all Californians. It details visually and historically the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in a way most Californians have never seen or heard about it. The film not only clarifies many of the often murky issues surrounding this beautiful region, it is many times a stunning inditement to the state water agencies and “powers that be” with clear facts and figures that refute information that’s given out to the media and general public. And it’s stunningly beautiful in its cinematography.

The next two showings will be in Stockton on Monday, August 20 at 7:00pm at the Empire Theater and in Los Angeles with a special appearance by Ed Begley Jr. on Tuesday, August 28 at 7:00pm at the Landmark Theater. If you’re in either of those areas, this is one film you won’t want to miss. For tickets, go to OverTroubledWaters.org.
