Twin Cities environmentally-minded friends filled a theatre in the Lagoon Cinema in mid-July to watch a special screening of The Last Mountain, many met up for a social hour following the film. Proceeds benefited Windustry.
The Last Mountain looks at the effects of mountaintop coal removal in West Virginia’s Coal River Valley, and the grassroots fight to stop it. The film had its world premiere in the U.S. Documentary ompetition category of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and has been playing in select theaters across the country, receiving strong positive reviews.
"The subject of this film goes far beyond West Virginia.” said Windustry Executive Director, Lisa Daniels. “It shines a light on America’s energy needs, how those needs are being supplied, and takes a stand for supporting renewable energy."
