This is a really cool hour-long documentary movie about the Chattahoochee River made by two guys who are the sons of a gentleman I go to church with. They are big-time outdoor enthusiasts and travel the world doing film and photo shoots.  
A lot of us in the AOC use and care about the 'hooche.  This is a look at the management of that resource.   
From the website:
David and Michael Hanson's award-winning documentary covers the epic battle Georgia, Alabama and Florida are locked in over the fresh water from their once bountiful rivers.
They call it the "Water Wars." It's a conflict once unthinkable in the deep green South.
But is it all about high-stakes politics and legal action?
Two brothers decide to find out more and paddle the Chattahoochee, Flint, and Apalachicola for 30 days to ask the big questions, at water-level.
Along the way they meet meet colorful river friends and witness the competing interests of agricuiture, industry, and development for the river's precious water.
