Writer and director Philippe Caland relies on improvisation in his films.

It’s an unorthodox approach, he said, and it’s one that requires a lot of trust from his actors.

It’s also one of the reasons he chooses to star in his films, he said — to be certain his ideas and intentions are getting through.

“Ripple Effect,” Caland’s latest film, which will screen twice during this year’s Sedona International Film Festival, stars Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, Academy Award nominees Virginia Madsen and Minnie Driver, and Caland in the leading role.…

Darabont horrifies Sedona

“The Mist,” a cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s novella of the same name, is the crazy, intense horror film Academy Award-nominated director Frank Darabont always wanted to make.

Raw sewage spills out of View Drive manhole

Raw sewage spills out of View Drive manhole

Sewage ran down View Drive and into an adjoining yard on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 1 p.m.

Three members of the Sedona city wastewater staff responded to the spill, bringing their giant vacuum truck to clean out the plugged manhole.

Two members of the city’s public works department also responded.

 “We’ll clean it out and then send the pressure hose through the line with a camera on it to see what’s going on,” said Reed Kramer, from the city’s public works staff.

Only one yard was affected by the runoff and Kramer said that decontamination fluid would be applied to clean it up.

No one is currently occupying the residence which had a “for sale” sign on it.

Kramer said that manhole overflows in the city are not common, and are usually caused by residents throwing out grease and other materials that plug the sewer lines.

Wastewater and sewers aren’t the most appetizing of topics, but they’re the most expensive items on Sedona’s financial menu.

In response to a request from the Sedona Red Rock News, candidates for Sedona City Council offered their thoughts on the subject:

What are the environmental and financial risks in the city’s current drainage and sewer infrastructure?

* Incumbent City Coun-cilman John Bradshaw: “Environmental issues for sewer are spills, blockage and pump failures which could, if not maintained, end up in Oak Creek or our water supply.

“Flood drainage also is a way for pollutants to end up into our water supply, and damage to personal property can result if not addressed properly.…
