Changed: When The Dams Opened
February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Houston City Council Member Greg Travis is hosting a screening of Changed: When The Dams Opened, a film about Houston produced by former Fox News reporter Maria Sotolongo.
The film will be shown free of charge on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. in the Legacy Room, first floor of City Hall, 901 Bagby, Houston, TX 77002. All interested persons are invited to attend.
Changed reveals the story of ten families whose lives were altered permanently after the storm — from a pregnant mother who gave birth to her first child early due to the stress of the hurricane to the death of a loved one who drowned in his own home. Changed explores ways to heal and rebuild after the devastating blow Harvey brought to Houston.
The director doesn’t just narrate the story. She also shares her own family’s struggles. They too lost everything in their one-story home when it took on 4.5 feet of water for 14 days.
Sotolongo got her start in TV as an entertainment reporter and meteorologist for Fox News but has since moved behind the camera as a filmmaker and producer.
Council Member Travis represents District G. He will be providing refreshments and snacks.
