SHORED UP (USA, 2013, 84 min.)

Living in the Anthropocene: The Age of Humans

When Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, it was a wake-up call to a new reality for coastal communities. People have always flocked to the seashore, but as global warming and more extreme weather events become the new reality, coastal cities will have to adapt to an increasingly volatile paradigm. We travel to the heart of this climate change controversy– communities in New Jersey and North Carolina where politics, economics and science collide. Shored Up, which was three years in the making, is a convincing call for action along our coasts. Directed and produced by Ben Kalina.

Introduced by Jeffrey Stine, Curator for Environmental History, National Museum of American History. Discussion with filmmaker Ben Kalina and Steve Ellis, Taxpayers for Common Sense, follows screening.
