Cincinnati Council is considering law and policy changes related to landslides inspired by our documentary. Upon request, we offer screenings for local civic and educational groups.
Landslides occur in every neighborhood in Cincinnati and throughout our region. Private property owners who experience landslides can not get insurance coverage or financial assistance for repairs, so landslides can destroy a homeowner's largest lifetime investment.
Taxpayers are also paying the price, with local governments spending millions of dollars each year to repair slides, fix retaining walls and roads related to landslides.
The Hillside Trust is a non-profit dedicated to preserving our hillsides in our region and educating the public. When Eric Russo approached me to produce and direct a documentary on landslides to help educate the public, I was intrigued, then amazed. I had no idea of the depth of our landslide issues despite serving as a former elected city official and a longtime resident.
Produced over a 2-year period, our film includes the city's Columbia Parkway landslide repair and some amazing stories of how citizens have been affected by landslides on their properties. We include steps people and governments can take to "live" with landslides. With climate change, landslides will only get worse.
