From the Ashes (2017)

From the Ashes 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 current administration. 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’s 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.

From the Ashes is produced by RadicalMedia and Sidney Beaumont, and executive produced by Joe Berlinger, as well as Jon Kamen, Katherine Oliver and Justin Wilkes, in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies. National Geographic Documentary Films plans a limited theatrical release this summer, and the film will air globally on National Geographic later in 2017.
