SHORT FILMS: Shore Stories
Fogartyville, 525 Kumquat Court
Shore Stories, six short films that highlight the grassroots resistance to offshore oil drilling taking place across the US, as well as stories from past oil and gas exploration – including the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. The Stories are told by a broad range of people who love the coast and stand together in opposition to drilling–surfers, fishermen, scientists, environmentalists, business owners, and coastal residents. After the films we’ll discuss the proposal and how you can get involved in resisting these disastrous plans.

Join us to stand together to protect the coast, and learn how we can keep up the fight to say NO to offshore drilling!

Hosted by Suncoast Waterkeeper and Working Films.

FILM: After the Spill
Fogartyville, 525 Kumquat Court

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the coast of Louisiana. Five years later the Deepwater Horizon exploded and spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the worst ecologic disaster in North American history. Many in Louisiana predicted it would change the state’s coastline forever, both its economy and its people. How has the coast changed in the past five years?  A follow-up to the 2010 film ‘SoLa, Louisiana Water Stories,’ this new film introduces us to some of the spill’s most aggrieved victims as well as those who are desperately trying to save its coastline.
