ROCK THE BOAT - a fresh new doc
One man's dream to kayak in Los Angeles, a cemented-in river, and a watershed moment for the nation.
“Rock the Boat” follows a controversial and surreal boating expedition down the cemented-in Los Angeles River and looks at how the ‘city of dreams’ turned into nightmare sprawl due to our history of using, managing and re-working nature in a single-minded quest for 'more'. (Think Huckleberry Finn meets "Chinatown"). "Rock the Boat" is about how we found paradise, lost it, and might re-claim it. By turning the LA River into a vibrant focal point of LA, as many are now envisioning, this ever-expanding city might be again alive with hope and dreams, while becoming almost completely locally reliant for its water supply.
"On The Edge" (6 minutes short) In the summer of 2008 a group of intrepid Angelenos embarked on an unlikely and very illegal adventure: to boat the entire 51-mile length of the forbiddenLA River. Just after they were stopped by police in helicopters, they were met by three groups of dancers.
