BATTLE FOR THE BARRIERS -
Compounded by sea level rise and stronger and more frequent storms, lives and infrastructure in coastal communities are increasingly at risk for flooding and wind driven destruction from events like super storm Sandy. Battle for the Barriers explores adaptation strategies and projects in coastal states along the Eastern US seaboard designed to help safeguard the people, wildlife and properties in these storm and flood prone areas. In the absence of Federal policy to address climate change, state-based organizations, both public and private, seek to protect beaches, dunes and wetlands--the first line of defense along the coastlines and inland waterways in harm's way. As solutions are hopefully developed to reduce our carbon footprint, protecting these natural barriers is critical to preventing new catastrophic loss from storm events and encroaching sea level rise. It is a battle further complicated by ongoing development fueled by the promise of Federal subsidy in the event of disaster.

PICKING UP THE PIECES -
The film explores the perspectives of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors as they rebuilt their lives after the Second World War. Answering the question, “How do you “live” after surviving the Holocaust?” the film builds a nuanced and complex portrait of the survivors’ struggles through the lens of key universal questions about Belief in God, Forgiveness, Home, Jewish identity and Memory. Nine survivor’s voices are interwoven together and merge into a choral ensemble telling the previously untold story of the efforts of child survivors to build normal and productive lives from tragic beginnings. Child survivors are now the last living witnesses of the Holocaust. Their struggle, bittersweet reflections, hope and energy are poignant and uplifting testament to the human spirit.

THE TIDE -
As Joseph heads home he literally bumps into a gang of young kids. Bored and looking for an argument, the kids decide to turn a casual accident into a serious incident. But as the situation quickly escalates out of Joseph’s control, he is reminded of a moment from his school days when he learned the terrifying reality of what he’s capable of when pushed past his limit.
That moment changed the course of his life. It taught him that there are times to be calm and controlled, and times when only a non-rational response is the only answer. But right now, in this moment, whichever course of action he takes it won’t only be him that is affected.

Empty Threat - CHVRCHES     
How strange and refreshing to watch something about being a teenager that doesn't revolve around conflict. In Chvrches's video about a group of young goths' trip to a South Florida water park, director Austin Peters doesn't dwell on opposition. (If it happens at all, it's from a few side-eyes on the edges of the frame.) Instead Peters focuses on feelings of kinship, with a humanistic approach that's never cloying. Starring 16-year-old high school student and photographer Riley Buttery (who got a reprieve from being grounded during filming) and several other locals, "Empty Threat" isn't about being out of step, it's about finding your footing.
