See this 2011, Sundance film selection, The Last Mountain by Bill Haney. Here’s more on the film presented by Awake and Engage(d) documentary series:
Thursday, March 1st, we are proud to present a special session of Awake and Engage(d) examining Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining. It may be no surprise that AwAE has wanted to feature Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining for some time now. It is an important and complex environmental issue. We are pleased to bring a bold film on the subject to our campus. The film is “The Last Mountain,” and it argues that the battle for a single mountain in an Appalachian valley affects most Americans while exhibiting just how Big “Big Coal” is. AwAE is pleased to welcome special guest host Sara Coffman, UTC Lecturer in English and Appalachian activist, who has been in contact with the group Appalachian Voices. Information about Mountaintop Removal can be found on their websites: www.appalachianvoices.org and www.ilovemountains.org. Information follows.
Note: as the series is growing, seating is often limited at our sessions. Admission is free (thanks to our generous sponsors). Hope to see you there; please email me with any questions.
