A remarkable short film, Water for Santa Cruz, beckons area residents to embrace the source of much of what we love about this magnificent coastal place we make our home: the water of regional Santa Cruz. An educational and inspirational film that explores alternatives to the proposed Desalination Plant, Water for Santa Cruz premiered Thursday, July 11, at the Rio Theatre at 7:30 pm.
Water pervades life, yet its presence and the need to steward it wisely slips easily from awareness. Filmmaker Christopher McGilvray (www.SixFingerFilms.com) and water economist Scott McGilvray have produced an exquisitely beautiful portrayal of the graceful, serene regional waterworld stirring deeply compelling affections in people, whether lifelong residents, newcomers, or sojourners visiting briefly. The film interviews local water experts about three specific steps to water security.
