Inundation District
is a 2023 feature-length film about the implications of Boston’s decision to ignore the threats posed by climate change and spend billions of dollars on building a new waterfront district — on landfill, at sea level. In a time of rising seas and intensifying storms, one of the world’s wealthiest, most-educated cities made a fateful decision to spend billions of dollars erecting a new district. Unlike other places imperiled by climate change, this neighborhood of glass towers housing some of the world’s largest companies was built well after scientists began warning of the threats, including many at its renowned universities. The city, which already has more high-tide flooding than nearly any other in the United States, called its new quarter the Innovation District. But with seas rising inexorably, and at an accelerating rate, others are calling the neighborhood by a different name: Inundation District.

Members of BRCAT including representatives from Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, local town climate action team members from Southport, Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay and Edgecomb, along with town officials (select board members, town managers, code enforcement officers, and emergency managers) have been invited to answer questions and discuss the local implications posed by the issues raised in the film. Filmmaker David Abel will participate via Zoom to answer questions about his film and the research which led to its production.

Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $8 for Harbor Theater members. The box office will open at 5:00 p.m.
