Sorry for the late notice on this, but I was putting together Special Screenings and noticed I’d missed one.
Shore Stories, which are six short documentaries aimed at building public opposition to offshore drilling, screens at 6:30 TONIGHT in Huntington Beach.
Curated by Working Films and allied organizations, the shorts highlight the grassroots resistance taking place across the U.S., as well as stories from past oil and gas exploration, including the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster.
“As the Trump Administration moves to expand offshore drilling in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic oceans, as well as the Gulf of Mexico, people across the country are standing up against these plans,” explain organizers. “Shore Stories is a resource in these efforts, exposing residents to powerful media and connecting them to the timeliest actions.”
Shore Stories begins at 6:30 p.m. at Pacific City, 21010 Pacific Coast Hwy., Huntington Beach; www.gopacificcity.com/events/. Admission is free.
