Join us for our monthly meeting and program at the BVAS Nature Center: this month’s program will feature the Salton Sea, with the film “Breaking Point” with director Bill Wisneski. 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.
Filmmaker Bill Wisneski presents his award-winning film “Breaking Point.” As a director, producer, writer, and cinematographer, he has received fourteen Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards and dozens of other accolades for his compelling environmental documentaries.
His films have been shown at more than fifty film festivals throughout the country and aired on numerous PBS stations in the Western United States.
