Documentary Film Screening

Tuesday, October 4, 2011, 7pm

Brown Hall Auditorium

"The Last Mountain" (U.S.A. 2011, 95 min), a documentary film by Bill Haney, focuses on Coal River Valley, West Virginia, where a small but passionate group of ordinary citizens are trying to stop the devastating practice of Mountaintop Removal mining.  The film examines the politics, economics, and ecology of the method of coal extraction sometimes called Radical Strip Mining.  The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January, and is scheduled to be released on DVD in November.

This ETSU screening was organized by Amy Poole, an undergraduate in Political Science, and is co-sponsored by ECO (Environmental Conservation Organization), an ETSU student group, and by the Environmental Studies minor.  For more information, contact Amy Poole at poolea2goldmail.etsu.edu, or Dr. Kevin O'Donnell at odonnell@etsu.edu, 423 439-6679.
