EXCLUSIVE: Clip from THE LAST MOUNTAIN
At their best, documentaries bring to light topics that one wouldn’t normally be privy to. Be it the life of a person one doesn’t have knowledge of, or in the case of Bill Haney’s upcoming film, THE LAST MOUNTAIN, an issue that doesn’t get its just news.
MOUNTAIN looks at the battle over Coal River Mountain in the valleys of the Appalachians; a battle between those looking to mine and burn coal found on the mountain, and those who know of this act’s resulting natural consequences. A small group who the film follows is attempting to stop Big Coal from harming the mountain and the surround ecosystem. And if that great premise doesn’t catch your eye, then maybe this exclusive clip will do just that.
The clip follows one of the people you’ll meet during this film, Lorelei Scarbro, who was born into a family of coal miners. Member of the Coal River Mountain Watch, she is just one of the large collective of people who you’ll meet during the film; a collective of men and women attempting to make their voices truly heard, helping to stop Big Coal from taking over yet another mountain for monetary gain.
