“This Time Next Year:” This Time Next Year tracks the resilience of the Long Beach Island, NJ community for one year as they rebuild after 2012’s Hurricane Sandy. Using a mixture of verite, first-person accounts, and the residents’ own footage, This Time Next Year is a poetic documentation of a shore community as they battle local politics, cope with personal tragedy, and band together in the face of transition.
