Locally-Produced "Battle for the Barriers" Film to be Shown in Wilmington

Battle_for_the_Barriers_posterLater this month, Hearts and Minds Film Initiative invites the public to watch “Battle for the Barriers,” a 32-minute documentary produced by Wilmingtonian Sharon Baker of Teleduction.

The film has Delaware ties: It explores how sea level rise and more frequent super-storms have spurred strategies and projects across eastern coastal states to protect people, wildlife and property. The documentary focuses on the Coastal Barrier Resources Act, which former Delaware Congressman Tom Evans was instrumental in helping to pass. But protecting shores, the film argues, gets complicated by on-shore development made possible by promised federal subsidies in the event of a disaster.

A short Q&A session and refreshments will follow the viewing.
