About

About 568 Productions:

We are a team of filmmakers at American University who make films centered on the culture, history, and health of the Chesapeake Bay. This year we are producing After the Storm: Pollution in the Potomac, which explores the issue of combined sewer overflow in the Potomac River and it’s tributaries.

About the Chesapeake Bay:

The Chesapeake Bay region in Southern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia is one of the most environmentally sensitive areas in North America. As such, policies written to restore the Bay sometimes are implemented with politically polarizing effects. This makes cleanup progress slow and difficult. Insightful filmmaking about the Chesapeake and its tributaries helps us better understand the complexities surrounding the restoration and health of the bay.
