Free documentary screening

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 under the Trump administration. From Wyoming’s Powder River Basin to Appalachia, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often-heartbreaking stories about what is at stake for our economy, health and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.

Casper resident Anne MacKinnon will lead a discussion with the audience following the film. Call 307-460-8046 for more information.
