You are invited to a special advance screening of From the Ashes, a documentary from the National Geographic Society and the Bloomberg Foundation. It will be shown on Tuesday evening June 20 at 7 PM in Room 102 in Rogers-Stout Hall on the ETSU Campus.
Green Interfaith Network, in conjunction with ETSU’s Environmental Studies Program and Appalachian Studies Department, is working with National Geographic Films and Bloomberg Philanthropies on local solutions to this global problem. Tuesday's screening will be among the first for From the Ashes in our area.
Presented by NatGeoTV, the film takes a compelling and often heartbreaking look at what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. Learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for our future.
With its focus on the coalfields, this new documentary is especially relevant to us in Southern Appalachia.
On the heels of President Trump’s executive order to undo Clean Power Plan regulations, National Geographic Global Networks presents a compelling feature documentary that explores one of the country’s most contentious topics — coal and the mining industry. 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 is 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.
From the Ashes is an important documentary that underscores one of the most dominant and controversial industries in the history of the United States. The film explores the reality of coal’s role in climate change while offering insight into solutions that could help revive the struggling economies of dying mining towns and still safeguard the environment.
