About The Film

Protect Downtown Athens - Athens Raise Your Voice

Directed by Bryan Redding

Downtown Athens, Georgia is renowned for its rich cultural history, creative artistic community, local businesses and world famous music scene. Athens has earned its nickname the "Classic City." At the end of 2011, a massive downtown development proposal that included a 94,000 square-foot Walmart retail store threatened (and continues to threaten) to alter Athens irrevocably. In this film, several Athenians raise their voices and underscore the importance of protecting their unique town. The film was made to inspire Athenians to work together to come up with a vision for downtown development that will better benefit the local citizens and enhance the long term viability of Athens. Directed by Bryan Redding, executive produced by Dan Jordan.
