“Protect: Coastlines, Guns and Women in the Low Country” a pilot episode of a series highlighting local sustainability stories

An enormous sense of gratitude to Two Lane Films fills me this week! I am honored to have been given a space alongside such inspiring human beings in my hometown, Savannah, Georiga, and the Low Country region. The short film “Protect: Coastlines, Guns and Women in the Low Country” has such an enormous message, and will be used as a conversation starter and catalyst for real change. Nationally, this powerful film is part of a series being planned by the Two Lane Films team to mobilize communities and inspire action on the global 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.  Locally and regionally, “Protect” (and eventually the other films in the series) serve as art in action by tackling the complex and interconnected threats to sustainability we face in local communities throughout the southeastern United States: poverty, lack of affordable and safe housing, decline in drinking water quality and quantity, food insecurity, plastics and chemical pollution, various forms of discrimination, reduced air quality, limited access to education and information, and climate change.  Please check out the short trailers and full interview with Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, on the Two Lane Films website.  And, stay tuned for much more exciting things to come from this project!  ~SLP
