‘Shored Up’ the Movie: coming soon to an auditorium near you!
Crossroads and the NC Coastal Federation present Ben Kalina’s award winning documentary ‘Shored Up’
7 p.m., Monday, March 31, 2014 at Joslyn Hall, on the campus of Carteret Community College, Morehead City
Don’t miss the screening of ‘Shored Up’ – a documentary on coastal development in North Carolina and New Jersey following Hurricane Sandy. ‘Shored Up’ asks tough questions about our coastal communities and our relationship with the land. What will a rising sea do to our homes, our businesses, and the survival of our communities? Our development of the coastlines puts us in a tough predicament, and it’s time to start looking for real solutions.
The film begins at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. The hall will open at 6 p.m., and sea level rise (SLR) researchers from ECU and beyond will be on hand in the foyer with posters describing the internationally recognized SLR research currently taking place in eastern Carteret County. Come early to get a good seat, then take this opportunity to talk firsthand with field researchers about the science behind sea level rise projections. After the screening there will be a panel discussion featuring SLR researchers along with Rudi Rudolph, Carteret County Shore Protection Manager.
