The Last Mountain
From The Giant: The Definitive Obey Giant Site
This print originally retailed for $55, a portion of which supported the film of the same title, as well as activist groups in West Virginia.
The big fossil energy corporations keep telling us we have no choice and simply must keep destroying communities (with mountaintop coal mining), spewing pollution and causing 10's-of-1000's of illnesses and deaths in the US (with mercury, arsenic, ozone, etc., etc.) and endangering the planet with CO2 — and all just to boil some water to make electricity. But it's a lie… Even in the heart of coal country in WV, they have a vision and want to see a wind-farm on their ridges, rather than dismantling the mountains for coal.
The film features Bobby Kennedy, Jr. and many incredible activists who are fighting Big Coal and proving that it will take a lot of heart to move the country forward. But we know it can be done — Germany just proved that today. But with the fossil fuel industry twisting democracy to their advantage, it’s going to take some action on our part!
Theater bookers say people are tired of environmental films, let’s prove them wrong!
