Special Documentary Screening Introduced by its Director
For the past four years California has undergone one of the most devastating droughts since rainfall has been measured in the state. Farmers have left fields fallow. Municipalities are starting to reconsider their plans for provision of water including sea water conversion. Ventura county film maker Steve Nicolaides went on the road to see first-hand how the drought is affecting the lives of people from Ogallala, Nebraska to San Diego, California.
The result is Eyes on the Sky , an impartial look at the present and the future of fresh water in our cities and farmland. The film was made to promote citizen discussion and prompt public action. The film’s focus is the west’s complicated relationship to water.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion.
STEVE NICOLAIDES was born in Los Angeles in December, 1948. Starting from the ground up, he worked in Saturday morning kids programing, gradually gaining experience to become a production manager. In 1991 he produced John Singleton’s Academy Award-nominated “Boyz N The Hood.” Throughout the nineties and the 2000s he produced a number of box-office and critical successes, including “The Forgotten”, “The School of Rock”, “Beverly Hills Chihuahua.”
