Watch Cadillac Desert
- 4 hr 30 min
Cadillac Desert is a long form documentary about the water situation in the western part of the United States and the possibilities of desertification. It was released in four parts in 1997. The first three parts deal with Mark Reisner's book on the subject, and the fourth is based on Last Oasis, by Sandra Postel. The film explores the hydrological situation with America primarily through the prism of the history of Los Angeles and the challenges faced by those who wish to supply Southern California with drinking water. Interviews and supporting evidence are amply supplied, and the film is often recommended by experts on the issue.
