Response has been so high to this event that an additional screening will take place from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Producer Ben Kalina will be available to answer questions, but the panel discussion will take place only after the 7 p.m. screening.
Our beaches and coastline are a national treasure, but they're disappearing in front of us.
Shored Up is a documentary that in the wake of Hurricane Sandy asks tough questions about our coastal communities and our relationship to the land. What will a rising sea do to our homes, our businesses, and the survival of our communities? Can we afford to pile enough sand on our shores to keep the ocean at bay? Beach engineering has been our only approach so far, but is there something else out there to be explored? Our development of the coastlines put us in a tough predicament, and it’s time to start looking for real solutions.
The event, hosted by Capitol Broadcasting Company and sponsored by the N.C. Coastal Federation, begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public. No reservations are needed, but seating is limited so plan to arrive 15 to 30 minutes early. A good turn-out is expected.
A panel discussion moderated by Chris Fitzsimon will take place following the screening at 8 p.m.
