Breaking Point Documentary Screening: Time Is Running Out

April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Breaking Point: Time is Running Out

The worst environmental disaster in U.S. history is quickly approaching, yet very little is being done to stop it. A casualty of the “water wars” in the Southwest, California’s largest lake is disappearing. The receding Salton Sea reveals a toxic mix of fine dust and chemicals that is threatening the health of millions. The Salton Sea has reached its breaking point, and time is running out!

Wintu Audubon Society in conjunction with California Audubon presents this gripping 60 minute documentary film with a discussion to follow hosted by Desiree Loggins, Central Valley/Sierra Chapter Network Manager for Audubon California.

You are invited to attend this exceptional free local event. If you prefer not to sign up via the FREE downloadable eTicket through our shop, please help us by confirming the number of guests in your party by contacting us via email or calling Linda Aldrich at 223-5341 no later than April 10th.

Thank you! We look forward to hearing from you!

REVIEWS:

“An engaging and timely production… Facts are well presented, and there is much to think about and discuss as other natural and urban areas face similar problems around the globe.”
–School Library Journal

“An amazing job bringing a complicated subject to the screen in a non-biased and scientifically supported way.”
-Patty Deen, Professor of Geology, Palomar College

“Absolutely fantastic! You nailed the complexity of the Sea with great visual artwork! Very compelling. Best video I have seen yet on the Salton Sea.”
-Dr. Timothy Krantz, Professor, Environmental Studies, University of Redlands

“An admirable job. Your film tells a very complex story. I especially like the means of addressing historical events.”
-Doug Barnum, Certified Wildlife Biologist, US Geological Survey

“We were mightily impressed. Its intellectual and production values elevate it…. I’ve been covering the Salton Sea since 2001 and still there were things I learned in the documentary. It will help save what I believe to be a vital environmental and natural resource.”
-Stephen Siciliano, special correspondent, Bloomberg Bureau of National Affairs (BNA)
