Reclaiming the LA River"

ROCK THE BOAT - a fresh new doc
   One man's dream to kayak in Los Angeles,
          a cemented-in river, and
                a watershed moment for the nation.

“Rock the Boat” follows a 
and surreal 
boating expedition down 
the cemented-in 
Los Angeles 
River and looks at how 
the ‘city of dreams’ 
turned into 
nightmare sprawl due 
to our history of using, 
managing and re-
working nature in a 
single-minded quest for 
(Think Huckleberry Finn 
meets "Chinatown"). 
"Rock the Boat" is about 
how we found paradise, 
lost it, and might re-claim 
it. By turning the 
LA River into a vibrant focal 
point of LA, 
as many are now envisioning, 
this ever-expanding 
city might be again alive 
with hope and dreams, 
while becoming almost 
completely locally reliant for its water supply. 
"On The Edge" (6 minutes short)
In the summer of 2008 a 

group of intrepid A
ngelenos embarked on an 
unlikely and very
illegal adventure: to boat the 
entire 51-mile length of the 
forbidden LA River. 
Just after they were stopped 
by police in 
helicopters, they were 
met by three groups of dancers.
