“Unshore” Documentary marks Anniversary of Superstorm Sandy

Premiered at 2013 Montclair Film Festival and screened at the ​​Ocean ​​Grove Blogfinger Film Festival

It’s been one year since Superstorm Sandy made landfall on the Eastern seaboard of the United States. The destruction left in her wake tore at the hearts of New York and New Jersey. The physical damage would be around 60 Billon, but the emotional damage would be much more. We all watched as generations along the Jersey shore literally were recaptured by the sea. It was a sunrise scene that still sends a shiver along the spines of those who call the coast their home, from Sea Bright to Seaside Heights.

“Unshore” is a documentary by Montclair State University FILM students Tom Mika and Lindsay Massman that premiered in the 2013 Montclair Film Festival and has screened at the ​​Ocean ​​Grove Blogfinger Film Festival.

The film follows the rebuilding efforts in Seaside, NJ post-Hurricane Sandy. The short documentary takes an intimate look at what the Seaside boardwalk was, and what the future holds for the iconic summer destination for locals and tourists alike
