    ALTON CITY — A chance visit to the Salton Sea in 2014 for Los Angeles-based screenwriter and filmmaker Greg Bassenian has resulted in a documentary set to be released later this month.

    The film, “Miracle in the Desert: The Rise and Fall of the Salton Sea,” examines the ecological and public health threats posed by the lake’s receding shoreline, and features a few faces that local residents are likely to recognize.
