"Mountain Top Removal" doc screening Oct 16th

Ever wonder where your electricity comes from?

Come to the screening and find out why ‘the energy crisis’ is such an important part of the Presidential campaign.

You are cordially invited to attend the Chicago premiere of Michael O’Connell’s award-winning documentary Mountain Top Removal. Centering on the struggle of coal field residents from across Appalachia to end the practice of the disastrous form of coal-strip mining, known as MTR, the film scratches the surface of America’s energy crisis and the true cost it incurs – human life. Following the film’s screening, there will be a panel discussion with Michael O’Connell and others involved in energy issues. The Topless America film crew and student organization will also be collecting spare change for Pennies of Promise to build a new Marsh Fork Elementary school in the Coal River Valley, WV. The film screening is part of Columbia College Chicago’s Critical Encounters Series.
