Join us at the Underground Cinema by WVIFF for August’s Movie That Matter Mondays film: From The Ashes

 

 

 

About the film:

 

From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the Trump Administration. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.

 

About the series:

 

 

 

WVIFF Underground Cinema Presents Movies That Matter Mondays – Each month, we will work with a community organization to show an issue-oriented and compelling film relating to their mission. 

 

What the Critics are Saying:

 

From the Ashes is both timely and squarely focused on the challenges at hand.

 

 

 

 

There’s nothing particularly cinematic about the well-crafted film, but it’s a compelling piece of advocacy journalism, one that looks beyond the sloganeering on all sides of the debate.

 

 

A powerful documentary shows what’s wrong with the coal industry and how to fix it.
