"Shored Up" is a new documentary film about sea level rise. 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. Following the film screening, there will be a Q&A session with Director Ben Kalina and New College Associate Professor, Frank Alcock.
