Film of legacy of coal industry set for June 20
"From the Ashes," distributed by National Geographic Documentary Films, will be presented at Holy Trinity Church, 13715 SW Walker Road, Beaverton, on Tuesday, June 20, 7-9 p.m. in the Fireside room.
The film captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry, and what its future should be. 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 the economy, health and climate.
The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.
Discussion and refreshments following the film.
