Fred Schmidt-Arenales

Untitled Ike Dike Film

Schmidt-Arenales will produce a film about the history, development, and speculative future of the “Ike Dike” plan as a coastal barrier to protect against hurricane-induced storm surges. The film focuses on something that only exists as an idea: a giant movable wall spanning Galveston Island to the Bolivar Peninsula, intended to protect the vulnerable property, corporations, residents, and infrastructure from the catastrophic hurricanes which strike the region.
