  "Who Owns Water?" a film by David Hanson, Michael Hanson, and Andrew Kornylak
 

This event will serve as the Athens premiere for the documentary "Who Owns Water?," which follows two brothers as they paddle from the headwaters of the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers in Georgia all the way to the Apalachicola River and ultimately the Gulf of Mexico. These three rivers are the battleground for the "Water Wars" which have raged since 1989 between Georgia, Alabama, and Florida over allocations of water between the three states.

Also the event will serve as the Athens launch party for the "Chattahoochee River Users Guide" by Joe Cook, released in August 2014 by the University of Georgia Press. Avid Bookshop will be selling copies of the UGA Press River Guides and Joe Cook will be present to sign them.

Georgia River Network, The Broad River Watershed Association, and Upper Oconee Watershed Network will be on hand to discuss water issues in our region and statewide.

6:30 - 7:30pm -- Complementary hors d'oeuvres from The National for ticket holders and cash bar; book signing; river group representatives in place.

7:30 - 8:30 -- David Hanson introduces and screens film

8:30 - 8:45 -- Q&A with Dave Hanson.

8:45 - 9:15 -- more mingling, book signing, and talking.

This event is co-sponsored by the UGA Environmental Ethics Certificate Program, the University of Georgia Press, and Georgia River Network.
