The legacy of the coal industry's devastating impact on the people and land of West Virginia is explored in this documentary. 1 hour, 20 minutes.
Uniquely structured upon the personal storytelling of native West Virginians, "Devil Put The Coal In The Ground" is a meditation on the suffering and devastation brought on by the coal industry and its decline. From the realities of a crumbling economy, to the ravages of the opioid epidemic, to the irreparable environmental damage and its tragic impact on human health – the film is a cautionary tale of unfettered corporate power, and an elegy to a vanishing Appalachia.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Peter Hutch and Lucas Ryan, and podcaster, Robyn Kincaid.
