Screening of “Shored Up” Documentary

3:15 PM - 4:45 PM
January 1, 1970

“Shored Up” is a thought-provoking, post-Sandy look at the issues related to coastal development and coastal flooding from extreme weather in New Jersey and North Carolina. Interviews with scientists, local and state politicians, advocacy groups and lobbyists are interspersed with dramatic footage taken immediately after the storm. This Sundance award-winning documentary explores development along the coast, the likely impact of sea level rise, federal subsidies of beach replenishment and flood insurance, and the politics and emotions that surround these topics. More than two years after the storm, these issues remain of critical concern to planners and policy makers. The screening will be followed by a moderated Q&A.
