Fire and Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change [In production / This film is not yet rated. Contains some heavy themes and occasional mature language /102 minutes]
Fire and Flood: Queer Resilience in the Era of Climate Change tells the story of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the fires in Santa Rosa, California, two-near simultaneous climate-related disasters in the fall of 2017, through the voices of LGBTQ people who lived through them and were part of the community response. The film explores the vulnerability of LGBTQ communities to climate disasters and lifts up queer and trans strategies for resilience, transition, and survival.
This event is sponsored by the East Brunswick Public Library and the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission, and funded by the American Library Association's, "Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change" pilot program.
