Join the Alabama Rivers Alliance and Huntsville Environmental Coalition for the FREE screening of the 2023 Southern Exposure films! This inspiring evening of film + discussion is an opportunity to catch up with what’s happening with ARA and our partners across Alabama and how you can help.


Wednesday, April 17

Films + Discussion from 6:30 – 9:30 pm

University of Alabama at Huntsville

Shelby Center for Science and Technology Room 107


Created in six weeks during the summer, the 2023 Southern Exposure films celebrate special people and places in Alabama while exploring complex issues and solutions. In this collection, we’ll explore the Sipsey Wilderness through the eyes of a “city girl” and see why our special places need to be protected for all Alabamians. We’ll learn about real wastewater solutions being implemented in the Black Belt, bringing justice to areas that have long been overlooked and underserved for these basic needs. We will meet three Indigenous people who have felt the call to protect their land, and we will hold ADEM’s feet to the proverbial fire as we question why a landfill was left essentially unregulated for years, resulting in the Moody Landfill Fire that raged for months. Finally, we will see just how precious the mussel is to our ecosystem, while learning about a project that would culminate in the most ecologically significant river reconnection project in the history of the United States, right here in Alabama.



Huge thank you to the special people who make Southern Exposure happen!
