Post-screening discussion with producer Sidney Beaumont and Mary Anne Hitt, Director of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal moderated by Steven Mufson (Washington Post).
From the Ashes (2017, USA, 82 min) 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.
Directed by Michael Bonfiglio. Produced by Sidney Beaumont.
