I have never left you and I will always be here for you. Have you forgotten me? When you are ready to  return I will be here for you. It’s time we start a life together again…

Okay, so we don’t usually post notices here. But this time we’re making an exception. Why?
1. Because we love L.A.
2. Because we love Water.
3. Because we know the film director : )

Moreover, when LA’s river was shackled by cement, the city’s lifeblood was iced over by concrete. Revive the water flow and life will once again flow more freely and flourish. We’re all for that.

So during this 82nd Annual Oscar Week, take a little time and take in a Doc about the city that cradles the film industry.

Produced by Heather Louise Parker and Directed by Thea Mercouffer
Cinematography by Ian Campbell, Edited by David Dobson, and Music by Mike Raznick
