An incredible short documentary by Ransom Riggs about a post-apocalyptic town in California. The Salton Sea was an accidental creation and it became a major tourist attraction in the mid-20th Century. However, increasing salinity has turned this once oasis into a wasteland. The Accidental Sea explains the background on this forgotten place and how it got to it’s current state. It is fascinating, beautiful and tragic at the same time.
