What is the film Coal Country about?



  1. 0 Votes

    COAL COUNTRY is a dramatic look at modern coal mining. We get to know working
    miners along with activists who are battling coal companies in Appalachia. We hear from
    miners and coal company officials, who are concerned about jobs and the economy and
    believe they are acting responsibly in bringing power to the American people. Both sides
    in this conflict claim that history is on their side. Families have lived in the region for
    generations, and most have ancestors who worked in the mines. Everyone shares a
    deep love for the land, but MTR (Mountain Top Removal mining which has leveled over
    500 Appalachian mountains) is tearing them apart. We need to understand the meaning
    behind promises of “cheap energy” and “clean coal.” Are they achievable? At what
    cost? Are there alternatives to our energy future?
