Director Mari-Lynn Evans discusses her new documentary, “Blood on the Mountain,” an investigation into the economic and environmental injustices that have resulted from corporate control in the coal mines of West Virginia, and their effect on American workers. Evans, the daughter of a coal miner, shows how for more than a century, coal companies and politicians kept coal workers laboring in unsafe conditions that killed thousands, while ravaging the state’s mountain environment.

"Blood on the Mountain" opens on Friday, Nov. 18th at Landmark Sunshine Cinema (143 East Houston Street). There will be Q&As at 7:45 p.m. on Nov. 18th, 19th and 20th. For more information about the panelists, visit the events page
