Tidewater (2017, 42 minutes)
Hampton Roads, Virginia, is home to our highest concentration of military assets in the country, where one in six residents is associated with the military. Their homes, schools, hospitals, and families are increasingly struggling to keep up with the effects of rising waters. The military and the surrounding municipalities are working towards solutions.
This special screening of Tidewater is also part of the University of Delaware's 2018 "Lecture and a Movie" film series. The College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment will host this event at the Main Street Movies 5 cinema at 230 E. Main Street in Newark (in the Newark Shopping Center). A panel discussion will take place following the film featuring oceanography professor Chris Sommerfield, Delaware Sea Grant Marine Advisory Service specialist Danielle Swallow, and Lewes-based photographer Judy Rolfe who was an assistant producer on the film. Reservations will be required for this screening — check back here for the link soon!
