Hatfielding is a short animated documentary about sewing machine salesman and rainmaker, Charles Hatfield. In 1916, the drought-ridden city of San Diego hired Hatfield to make rainfall. Like many rain wizards of their time, Hatfield had a secret chemical formula, which he fed to clouds from the heights of tall towers. The narrative weaves together other key moments in rainmaking history, culminating with Hatfield's excessive and hubristic attempt to control weather.
