TALES OF THE SAN JOAQUIN

The second longest river in California, the San Joaquin, has been called “the hardest working river in America” by many people — and “the most abused” by others. Once the birthplace of hundreds of thousands of salmon, the river now runs completely dry year-round — in two separate sections. This documentary film faces this harsh reality; but it also reveals how the doors have opened for the river’s eventual rebirth.

AFFLUENZA

While we Americans make up only five percent of the world’s population, we use nearly a third of its resources and produce almost half of its hazardous waste. Add overwork, personal stress, skyrocketing debt, and the erosion of family and community, and it is easy to understand why some people say that the American Dream is no bargain. This documentary film explores the high costs of materialism and tells the story of people opting out of the consumer chase, redefining the American Dream, and making “voluntary simplicity” a way of life.
