Work-in-progress Preview: Still Life

January 6, 2018, 2:30pm - January 9, 2018, 8:30pm

Join us at the Underground Cinema for special screenings of the film: Still Life These are work in progress community preview screenings taking place because of the important connection the film has to our community. Take part in special Q&A's with director Johnny St-Ours after both the Saturday screenings! About the film: A feature documentary about the water, industrial poisoning, and the people of southern West Virginia, using visceral imagery and poetic narratives to convey a universal experience of hard work, neglect, dirty dealings, death and even dark humor. A visceral study of Charleston, WV's headline-fetching chemical spill of 2014, the urban crises it caused, and the foundation of chronic environmental devastation within which it occurred. While the state's rural denizens remain steadfast to a culture of grin-and-bear-it, the urbanites encountering bad water for the first time begin taking flight, eroding West Virginia's proud capital, to its newest ghost town. Are the 'Coal Fields' in a mortal state? Or is there Still Life?
