Facing the Surge is a short film that documents the tangible costs of sea-level rise for the people of Norfolk, VA. Norfolk is home to the largest naval base in the country and to thousands of hard-working Americans struggling to adapt to the rising tides and an uncertain future. The town has registered 16 inches of sea level rise since 1930. “Facing the Surge” is not a film about loss and inaction. It tells the stories of citizens from across the United States as they step forward to raise awareness and push their government to pursue real solutions.

The film will be shown this Thursday, Dec. 1 at 2:30pm Center for the Arts Recital Hall (Building 1P, Room 120). A representative from Citizens Climate Lobby will be available to discuss the film and answer questions.
