Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea (Chris Metzler & Jeff Springer, 2004)
I really loved this documentary. It's about a weird accidentally man made extremely salty inland sea in the middle of the California desert that was a major palm springs style tourist spot in the 50s and 60s, but through mismanagement and ecological disaster has ended up as strange post apocalyptic wasteland populated by the few eccentrics who are still prepared to live there. And quite perfectly, it is narrated by John Waters. Man do I wanna visit this place. Recommended!
