Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church will host a free screening of Coal Country, tonight at 5:30 p.m. in Room D366 at the Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church (4823 Woodlawn) in Little Rock.

Coal Country is a stunning new documentary that reveals the devastation of mountaintop-removal coal mining to the forests, streams, and communities of Appalachia. Produced by Mari-Lynn Evans and Phylis Geller, Coal Country brings us inside the lives of Appalachian residents who are directly threatened by mountaintop-removal, a destructive mining practice where mountaintops are blasted away to expose the coal; the waste is then dumped in the waterways of nearby communities. As it takes us through each stage of coal mining and processing, Coal Country reveals the shocking true cost of America’s over-reliance on coal.

Discussion will follow the movie. Bring friends and popcorn. Please park in the upper deck off Woodlawn.
