The Accidental Sea: A post-apocalyptic hell-hole

May 17, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is a surprisingly lovely short film by Ransom Riggs that documents the rise and fall of a small community around an accidentally formed lake called the Salton Sea in the California Imperial Valley. Sit down, give it five minutes of your time, I promise it won’t disappoint. (via coudal)
