Starting point for this territorial study is California’s Salton Sea. The visual approach to this slowly drying up lake and its highly checkered past takes place through various kinds of images – most of which have been implanted with elaborately placed, willful moments of alienation. The artist Julia Scher narrates a history of Salton Sea based on a text by William L. Fox. What emerges is a disturbing portrait of a bit of the Anthropocene, whose ongoing catastrophic course, the film sums up nicely.
