King Coal Screening

February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Reuse Corridor and West Virginia Rivers are hosting a screening and discussion for King Coal, the much-anticipated film from West Virginia’s Elaine McMillion Sheldon. Part documentary, part art film, King Coal explores the complex history and future of the coal industry, the communities it has shaped, and the myths it has created. Emerging from the long shadows of the coal mines, King Coal uses McMillion’s personal experience to untangle the pain from the beauty and illuminates the innately human capacity for change.
A short discussion will follow the film, along with a collaborative reuse art project where community members can share their dreams for West Virginia’s future. Mark Buchanan with the Cabell County Solid Waste Authority will make a few remarks at the start of the event about how to better steward the environment around us, as the film encourages us to do.
Popcorn and drinks will be provided!
Entry is free, though you need to RSVP at this link to guarantee your spot:
