Sandy Storyline

Via New York, NY, USA

Sandy Storyline is a participatory documentary project that collects and shares stories about the impact of Hurricane Sandy on our neighborhoods, our communities and our lives. By engaging people in sharing their own experiences and visions, Sandy Storyline is building a community-generated narrative of the storm and its aftermath that seeks to build a more just and sustainable future. Sandy Storyline features audio, video, photography and text stories — contributed by residents and professional and citizen journalists–that are shared through an immersive web documentary and interactive exhibitions. Winner of the first-ever Transmedia Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, Sandy Storyline aims to bring the human impact of the storm into the national conversation about economic inequality, climate change, infrastructure development and the future of coastal cities in America. Sandy Storyline emerged from the belief that this is a moment so big that it requires a new kind of documentary storytelling: a project designed to foster civic dialogue so communities can decide, from the ground up, their own futures.
