Greetings From Death Valley

Synopsis

After unprecedented rainfall the desert of Death Valley burst into flower. Unseen in living memory, the flowers drew tourists from around the world.

Greetings from Death Valley tells three stories from this forgotten landscape. From the last two residents in a gold rush town. From a village at the edge of a lake dried up to feed water to the distant city of Los Angeles. From the proposed site of the dump for all of the USA's nuclear waste.

Told through the voices of residents living with the consequences of these events, the film is three postcards from places America would rather ignore.
