Premieres Wednesday, April 24 at 8 p.m. on WHRO TV15


WHRO Public Media and WORLD present a new documentary about life on the Eastern Shore and the challenges of living and working on the water. 

Against the Current provides a powerful glimpse of how Virginia’s Eastern Shore residents are subject to the challenges of rising water’s effects on their lives and livelihood and through resilience and perseverance learn to co-exist and celebrate their rural home. How can this unique community shed light on the national conversations happening around these climate issues?

WHRO's Lisa Godley will moderate a discussion after the screening, and she will be joined by a panel of experts as well as people who appeared in the film. Attendees will also enjoy giveaways and fun activities. 

We hope you will join us at one of the screenings listed below.
