Rehoboth Beach Film Society and Milton Historical Society co-present Delmarva Roots, a three-part film series featuring films about Delmarva’s rich history. The first film event of the 2014 series takes place on Friday, Jan 31, 2014, at 7:00 pm, with a screening of “Shored Up” at the Milton Fire Hall, 116 Front Street, Milton, Delaware. Admission for this event is $5 for adults and $3 for children twelve and under. Tickets can be purchased online at www.rehobothfilm.com or by calling the Rehoboth Beach Film Society at 302.645.9095, ext. 1.“Shored Up” is a documentary that asks tough questions about the relationship between coastal communities and the ocean. What will a rising sea do to coastal homes, businesses, and the survival of resort communities? Beaches are a national treasure and a shared resource but they are slowly disappearing! Can we afford to repeatedly pile enough sand on our shores to keep the ocean at bay? What is the impact of these measures on the adjacent coastline? In Long Beach Island, New Jersey, Outer Banks and other beach communities along the eastern seaboard, surfers, politicians, scientists, and residents are racing to answer these questions. Beach engineering has been the only approach so far, but is there something else to be explored? Ongoing coastal development creates a tough predicament, and it’s time to start looking for solutions. Geoff Berkshire from “Variety” magazine writes, “Shored Up delivers a sobering examination of the threat rising sea levels pose to coastal cities and the economic factors that encourage doubters to keep their heads firmly buried in disappearing sand.”

The film was directed and produced by Philadelphia filmmaker, Ben Kalina of Mangrove Media. Kalina is an award winning director and producer whose work focuses on the intersection of science, culture and the environment. Mr. Kalina will be available for a post-screening discussion to talk about this ground-breaking documentary and other filmmaking experiences. [2013, US, Runtime: 84 min, Not Rated]
