In the heart of Appalachia, a battle rages over the fate of the last great mountain. A mining giant that wants to obliterate Coal River Mountain for the coal that lies inside while local families fight to defend their community, their heritage and their futures.
The mining and burning of coal is at the epicenter of America's struggle to balance its energy needs with environmental and public health concerns, so the daring solution proposed by this small Appalachian community quickly takes on national significance. When Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. joins Appalachian families and activists, harnessing the power of citizen democracy to fend off the extraordinary and insidious power of Big Coal, the conflict flares.
With waitresses, college students and former marines taking extraordinary risks to stave off the Coal Industries lobbyists and politicians, the revolutionary fight for the future of Appalachia, and for our collective future, is revealed in the film, THE LAST MOUNTAIN.
THE LAST MOUNTAIN is being released theatrically by DADA Films in June 2011
This event is free, seating is limited – first come, first serve.
