Rock the Boat follows the 2008 tale of a group's 51-mile boating expedition down the notorious Los Angeles River. The waterway was channelized by the Army Corps of Engineers to prevent flooding in Los Angeles. In an absurd act of civil disobedience, the group – led by local satirical writer George Wolfe – boated down the fenced-in waterway, hoping to have the EPA declare it navigable, so that it could gain protection under the Clean Water Act. Rock the Boat tells the story of one man’s ordinary relationship with an extraordinary river; Wolfe’s simple act of boating the LA River becomes a political movement, which leads to changes in federal policy and opens up public access to the long-neglected waterway. http://rocktheboatfilm.com
