About The Film

Hidden Rivers of Southern Appalachia (Short Film Showcase)

Directed by Jeremy Monroe & Dave Herasimtschuk

Biodiversity. It’s in the rivers of the Amazon, the jungles of Borneo, the coral reefs of Belize... oh, and the creeks of Georgia. That’s right, Southern Appalachia is a little-known hotspot for aquatic life and is home to some wildly diverse fish, mussels, salamanders, crayfish and other critters. Hidden Rivers takes an immersive look at the little-known creatures of these waters, their striking beauty and extreme vulnerability. This film series focuses on how some Southerners are finding new ways to celebrate and protect this precious life, and reminding us all that biodiversity is everywhere and rivers are always deeper than you think!
