SF Green Film Festival: 'Tidewater'

Sea level rise is happening and Hampton Roads, Virginia, is on the frontline. Home to the world's largest naval base, 17 local jurisdictions, and 2 million citizens, the rising waters and sinking land could have a devastating effect on U.S. national security. Tidewater tells the personal story of a community accustomed to hardship and sacrifice through its military service. Now they’re coming together to create a new approach to building a resilient America, ready for the environmental realities of the 21st century. If Hampton Roads succeeds, it will mean success on several levels. They'll save their homes, schools, businesses, the naval base, and that's no mean feat. But they'll also create a powerful template for success, a model other regions can use to prepare for and deal with disaster.

DISCUSSION WITH:
- Nate Birnbaum, producer/co-writer, Tidewater; Assistant Director, American Resilience Project
- Andrea Marr, Defence Council, Truman National Security Project
- Nat Kreamer, President & CEO, Spruce Finance
