From the documentary series, Something to Talk About on Audience Network on Direct TV, Shored Up premiered on October 24th.
Approximately one year later, the country remembers those who have and those who are still suffering from last year¹s Hurricane Sandy.
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 storm¹s 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.
Listen to insightful discussions on coastal management from a Professor of Coastal Geomorphology from Rutgers University, Coastal Engineers, the Mayor of Harvey Cedars, LBI, NJ, the former mayor of Beach Haven, LBI, NJ, a Professor from the Center for the Study of Coastal and Marine Biology from Eastern Carolina University, a surf journalist, politicians and residents.
