“We will transmit this City, not only not less, but greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.” – The Athenian Oath

In his second Athens Rising documentary, Preston looks at the creative class in Athens, GA through the lens of our unique organizations & institutions, the artists they inspire, the community we build, and our collective potential. Athens Rising 2: Transmittance “captures the hope, the drive, the power, and the love of this fault-line riven, beautiful, and flawed city.” – Brent Temple
