During the 1990s, the Chattahoochee River was named the most endangered urban river in North America by American Rivers, a key conservation group. “Saving the Chattahoochee,” a new documentary by filmmaker Hal Jacobs, tells the story of the dedicated Atlanta women who fought to revive and protect the Chattahoochee River and its watershed.
This premiere screening of “Saving the Chattahoochee” celebrates the achievements and legacy of several Atlanta women who have defended the river over the last 50 years.
Following the film will be a Q&A with Sally Bethea, former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin and producer/director Hal Jacobs.
“Saving the Chattahoochee” is sponsored by Georgia Humanities.
