From Ironclad to Artifact:
The Journey of the CSS Georgia

The Journey of the CSS Georgia

On a busy spot in the Savannah River, with super-sized freighters racing past just yards away, archaeologists dove into the fast-moving, murky water to raise the remains of a one-of-a-kind Civil War shipwreck. The operation began with scuba divers after the ship's discovery in 1968, and continued through mid-2017 with some of the most high tech salvage tools in the world. Join filmmaker Michael Jordan for an in-depth look at decades of archaeology, as well as the back story on this truly unusual ship, which was funded with money raised by Georgia's women. This is the world premiere of "From Ironclad to Artifact: The Journey of the CSS Georgia," the latest release from the popular and award-winning Savannah filmmaker, Michael Jordan.

Shifting Baselines

Shifting Baselines

This engaging film tells the story of coastal Georgia's fishing families, who remember the once-booming southeastern commercial fisheries. While most families eventually ended or greatly reduced their involvement in commercial fishing, some have managed to continue to make a living into the third and fourth generations. Addressing the shifting baselines seen over time, research scientists and government administrators add their voices to the fishermen's, speaking candidly about the science behind government fisheries regulations, today's changing technology in the fishing industry, and challenges related to over-fishing. This is must-see viewing for those interested in our cultural history and is an enlightening look into the business of seafood.
