Shored Up

dir. Ben Kalina, US, 2013, digital, 83 min. – Philadelphia Premiere!

Shored Up is an urgent call to action in the face of accelerating sea-level rise, presenting the devastation of Hurricane Sandy as a window into the future. Set in Long Beach Island, NJ and the Outer Banks of NC, the film explores the political conflicts and personal stakes of communities along the shore. Shored Up talks to scientists, politicians, residents and a wide range of experts to expose major shortcomings in coastal management and the immediate need for change. Filmed over three years and culminating in the impact of Hurricane Sandy, it becomes an eerie foretelling of the storm’s devastation and a witness to its dramatic aftermath. Shored Up is a look at what happens when we ignore the realities of geology in our drive to inhabit and profit from our coastlines.

Director Ben Kalina will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion
