What is this film about?
Contrary to the title, Storm Surge is a not a disaster movie, but rather a film that celebrates the hope, optimism, and self-determination needed to build disaster resilient communities in advance of catastrophic shifts in ecosystems and the related impacts to our weather and our communities.
From super tornadoes, droughts, floods and fires, to the lingering impacts of hurricanes and the BP oil spill, millions of Americans now find themselves living in the cross hairs of a looming planetary emergency – global climate change.
Storm Surge is a film that’s more than what you see on the screen. It’s a movement, an educational campaign, an attempt to raise the level of climate consciousness with a younger generation.
Targeting middle and high school youth, Storm Surge‘s educational campaign will include study guides, bonus features, in-depth interviews, community discussions, town hall meetings, and a traveling lecture series – featuring Stacy Noland and other leaders working to help communities adapt to climate change and become more disaster resilient.
