‘After Sandy’ recovery documentary to stream tonight

    Monmouth County native Joe Minnella will stream his feature documentary tonight that chronicles life at the Jersey Shore after Superstorm Sandy on the storm’s third year anniversary. 

    “After Sandy” documents two years in the lives of several residents from the Jersey Shore and its surrounding towns during the Sandy aftermath, according to Minnella.

    The film’s producer, Anthony Jude Setaro, says he and Minnella began working on the documentary immediately after the storm struck.

    Minnella says the film captures the recovery efforts of everyday people coming together for a common cause, while also documenting the struggles of survivors.

    “We made this film to document a terrible event in our state’s history, and to also honor the incredible people that have helped and continue to help us overcome it,” he said. “We expect that everyone will probably take something different away from this experience. The one thing we hope and have worked for is that it simply measures up to the lofty standards that you all deserve.”

    “After Sandy” will begin live-streaming at 8 p.m. today, looping for 24 hours. The filmmaker will post a link to the documentary on its Facebook page here.
