12/31/05 Flood Film Showing

A showing of San Anselmo resident and filmmaker Ben Burtt's documentary of the 12/31/05 Ross Valley flood will take place on Friday, August 4th at 8 p.m. in the Fairfax Central Ballfield. Donations from the event will benefit the restoration of the Fairfax Pavilion. The film shows dramatic images of storm water, mud, destruction, and rescues that were captured by amateur photographers who were on the spot as it happened.

I watched the first showing of the film in San Anselmo and it is a documentary you will not want to miss.
