Q & A with the filmmaker to follow screening

Angelique Papadelias captured Hurricane Sandy from it’s onset until its devastating aftermath. She was initially a volunteer helping victims, but while out in the field, it allowed her to get in to the thick of what was going on from the perspective of those that were in need of help. She had such an overwhelming response to interviewing victims and telling their stories that she created the film from the footage she captured. Due for distribution and release at the one year anniversary of the storm on October 29th, 2013.

This Film is dedicated to all the victims of Hurricane Sandy. A specialthanks to all the New York Community that gave their time, shared their stories, and have helped show the rest of the world just how important it is to listen to the warnings of any natural disasters and prepare yourself and your loved ones for these situations that anyone could be a victim of due to global warming.
