According to modern research the global sea level has been rising at a relatively rapid rate for the past century, the main cause of this phenomenon being global warming. With eight of the world’s largest cities located near the coast, implementing effective measures to mitigate the potential risks associated with rising sea levels has become a public priority.
Ocean Cities, the new documentary from Throughline Productions, is a multifaceted examination of the complex relationship between coastal cities and the sea. To analyze the relevant issues from a variety of perspectives, locations include major cities in both the United States (Baltimore, San Francisco and Miami) and Europe (Amsterdam and Rotterdam).
The main goal of the documentary is to shine a new light on potential ways for major coastal cities to stay connected to the seas and oceans near them while also implementing innovative technologies to protect urban communities from flooding, storms and other severe weather phenomena associated with rising sea levels.
The documentary is also available in a longer version, which includes the re-imagining of the New York coastline.
