Hidden River screening April 17


Hidden River screening April 17

The RBC is pleased to present the Georgia premiere of Hidden Rivers, a new feature-length 1-hour film that explores the rivers and streams of the Southern Appalachian region, North America’s most biologically rich waters. The film follows the work of conservation biologists and explorers throughout the region and reveals both the beauty and vulnerability of this aquatic life and how many people are finding ways to protect it.

This screening will take place on Wednesday Evening (April 17) at Ciné on Washington Street across from the Creature Comforts brewery in Downtown Athens. There will be a reception and gallery viewing of images from Freshwaters Illustrated at 6:30 and a screening of the film at 7:30, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker and conservation biologists from across the Southeast. Tickets are available at the Ciné website here.

This film is presented in partnership with the UGA Office of Sustainability, Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE), and the UGA Fisheries Society.

This evening is a Let’s Talk About Water event sponsored by CUAHSI (www.cuahsi.org) and the Let’s Talk About Water Program (www.letstalkaboutwater.com) funded by the Johnson Family Foundation.
