Facing the Surge, an Adaptation Now film, documents the tangible costs of sea level rise for the people of Norfolk, VA. Norfolk is home to the largest naval base in the country and to thousands of hard-working Americans struggling to adapt to the rising tides and an uncertain future. But Facing the Surge is not a film about loss and inaction. It tells the stories of citizens from across the United States as they step forward to raise awareness and push their government to solve climate change.

Facing the Surge was an official selection of the International Ocean and Cinema Verde Film Festivals in 2017 and the Naples International Film Festival in 2016. The running time for Facing the Surge is 25 minutes.
