The Salton Sea is a huge inland “sea” in Southern California and one of the biggest man made disasters in the U.S. Now the area is a ghost town and all thats left are a few desert creedlers and some empty pools—- and lots of flies and dead fish.
Fruit of the Vine was the first film we made together back in 1999. We had no idea what were doing- we bought a few super 8 cameras for under $50 and went on the road for 2 months shooting film at as many pools as possible not knowing if the cameras worked or if we were using the right film. By the time we were done we skated more than 70 pools and had the road trip of a lifetime and ever more incredible all the film came out.
—You can rent this film at Have You Seen . . . Do it. I have rented it on two separate occasions and regretted it neither time.
