DOCUMENTARY SCREENING: WHO OWNS WATER? -- WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 22
The UGA Environmental Ethics Certificate Program, the University of Georgia Press, and Georgia River Network present the Athens premiere of 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. Filmmaker David Hanson will be in attendance for a discussion following the film.
The event will also 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.

BAD MOVIE NIGHT: ROCKTOBER BLOOD -- TUESDAY OCTOBER 28
Celebrating the very worst that cinema has to offer, Bad Movie Night presents the sleazy heavy metal slasher ROCKTOBER BLOOD. After a late night recording session, hard rocker Billy Eye embarks on a 4 AM booty call which evidently sends him on an impromptu killing spree, quickly racking up 25 bodies and a trip to the electric chair. Two years later, Billy's backup singer, Lynn, has taken over the band and is preparing to put on one bitchin' rock show when she begins seeing an undead Billy. Convinced he's still alive and out to get her, she takes the curious advice to spend some time recuperating in an isolated cabin in the woods.
Without delay, she starts to hear Billy's cackling and singing while strolling through the middle of nowhere and when she tries to unwind with a little high energy aerobics, Billy prank calls her from beyond the grave. Is Lynn losing her mind (or huffing too much hairspray), or is Billy really back from the dead, fueled with cocaine and armed with the knife-tipped mic stand??? Find out this Halloween, only at Bad Movie Night!

For Owens, who trained as a traditional painter, Baffle Medusa represents an experimental foray into contemporary manufacturing technologies - relying on a computer-controlled router to translate digital drawings into large-scale objects including sculptures and relief-carved panels. Themes and imagery developed in previous series return as Owens continues his development of a personalized, highly symbolic language of forms and characters assembled piecemeal from the cacophonous wreckage of cartoon, sci-fi, glam rock, and arcade imagery he accumulated in his youth. Jeff T. Owens was born and raised in the Savannah, Georgia area. He received his MFA in Drawing and Paining from the University of Georgia. He currently resides in Gainesville, Florida.
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY OCTOBER 18 @ 7p with LIVE MUSIC by OLD SMOKEY
