Brown, Health Department To Screen Documentary "Shored Up"

The critically-acclaimed documentary “Shored Up” will be playing at Brown University this evening.

The school’s Center for Environmental Studies and the Rhode Island Department of Health are sponsoring the movie screening and a panel discussion after the movie.

The documentary looks at how different coastal communities along the eastern seaboard are trying to deal with rising sea levels.

Policy and environmental science experts will sit on the panel, including the town planner of Westerly, where four natural disasters have hit in the past four years.

The film will play in the Carmichael Auditorium (Room 130) at the Building for Environmental Research and Teaching at 6 p.m. The panel discussion begins at 7:30 p.m., followed by a reception at 8:15 p.m.
