To mark this bleak anniversary, WSBE Rhode Island PBS presents the encore of Hometown Flood on Saturday night, April 2 at 7 p.m.
Last year, at the height of the catastrophe, Chris Walsh combined his fascination with weather and film making, and began recording images and interviews that would later become a compelling documentary.
Hometown Flood visits Westerly, Rhode Island, neighbors and businesses, local and state officials, and stunning footage captured at the height of the raging waters. Chris also re-visits some of the same people and locations three months later.
Hometown Flood tells a compelling story that will make you want to laugh and cry, cringe and cheer, as it celebrates the indomitable spirit of Rhode Islanders. We discussed the film in a previous blog, complete with video clips.
