A documentary film

Managed Retreat is a short documentary portrait  of three communities in Staten Island inundated by Hurricane Sandy, now purchased by the State government, to be torn down and returned to nature as rising sea levels reclaim New York City’s coastline.

Managed Retreat received two grants from Rooftop Films in December, 2015 – a Rooftop Filmmakers’ Fund Short Film Grant and a Rooftop Films / DCTV Equipment and Services Short Film Grant. The film is expected to be completed in late 2016.
