A remarkable short film, Water for Santa Cruz, beckons area residents to embrace the
source of much of what we love about this magnificent coastal place we make our home: the water of regional Santa Cruz. An educational and inspirational film that explores alternatives to the proposed Desalination Plant, Water for Santa Cruz premiered Thursday, July 11, at the Rio Theater. Water pervades life, yet its presence and the need to steward it wisely slips easily from awareness. Filmmaker Christopher McGilvray and water economist Scott McGilvray
have produced an exquisitely beautiful portrayal of the graceful, serene regional waterworld stirring deeply compelling affections in people, whether lifelong residents, newcomers, or sojourners visiting briefly. The film interviews local water experts about three specific steps to water security.

Christopher McGilvray graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz. After
working with the Santa Cruz-based production company Varied Directions, he cofounded Six Finger Films in San Francisco. Over the last five years he has produced, written, and directed a number of award-winning films and music videos. Water For Santa Cruz marks his first local production.
Scott McGilvray looks back over a 25-year career in construction and water conservation. He runs WaterAware landscape conservation company of Santa Cruz. He served on Gov. George Deukmejian's water conservation task force and received the California Landscape Contractors Association Member of the Year award. Scott earned an undergraduate degree in economics and an MBA at Stanford University.
