Film Description: The film raises awareness about an era of rising seas and strengthening storms, and questions Boston's decision to spend more than $20 billion building a new coastal 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. However, with seas rising inexorably, and at an accelerating rate, others are calling the neighborhood by a different name: Inundation District, and seeking solutions for a safe and equitable future.
