Environmental Film Festival: High Tide in Dorchester
An intimate look at the effects of climate change on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
High Tide in Dorchester aims to foster a conversation about climate change and the related impacts of sea level rise and erosion by telling the story of its effects in Dorchester County, Maryland. Already experiencing the rising tides that threaten costal areas worldwide, this low-lying county finds itself as ground zero for climate change in the Chesapeake Region. Currently the fourth largest county in Maryland, Dorchester is predicted to drop to the 14th by the year 2100 as waters continue to rise.
Join us for the D.C. premiere of this film, followed by a conversation with:
- Sandy Cannon-Brown: producer, High Tide in Dorchester
- Ann Swanson: executive director, Chesapeake Bay Commission
- Anna Sierra: director, Dorchester County Emergency Services
Required. Free. Reserve online at the Festival website.
This Cultural Capital program partnership is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change initiative in collaboration with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
