You’ve probably heard the story of the Delta told by people who want to reshape it to take the water and create corporate wealth. For this documentary, we’ve talked to North Coast fishermen and to Delta and Northern California farmers who have already seen their way of life changed, for the worse, by the way California has been managing its water. We’ve talked to people who maintain the Delta’s levees, to people who recreate in the Delta, and to people who understand the needs of the fish and other creatures who call the Delta home or pass through it, as the salmon do to spawn. We shine a bright light on some of the claims that have been used to justify sending ever more of the Delta region’s water to benefit corporate agriculture and big development interests.
