THE HIDDEN RIVERS OF SOUTHERN APPALACHIA (USA, 2013, 6 min.)
Rivers Lost, Found and Turned-Around and shown as part of the Rivers Program
Introduced by Bob Irvin, President of American Rivers.
World Premiere Biodiversity. It’s in the rivers of the Amazon, the jungles of Borneo, the coral reefs of Belize… oh, and the creeks of Tennessee. 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. The film focuses on how some Southerners are finding new ways to explore and celebrate this precious life, and reminding us all that biodiversity is everywhere and rivers are always deeper than you think! Directed and produced by Jeremy Monroe.
