Our beaches and coastline are a national treasure, a shared resource, a beacon of sanity in a world of constant change … and they're disappearing in front of us. Shored Up is a documentary that 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? In Long Beach Island, NJ, and the Outer Banks of NC, surfers, politicians, scientists and residents are racing to answer these questions. Beach engineering has been our only approach so far, but is there something else out there to be explored? Our development of the coastlines puts us in a tough predicament, and it's time to start looking for solutions. Shored Up is an official selection of the DOXA D.C., San Francisco Green, and Montclair (NJ) Film Festivals. Co-sponsored by the York, PA, chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby.
