Documentary Goes "Deep Down" for Human and Environmental Conflict

Deep_down-01-press A few months ago, The Green Life reviewed a documentary film called Deep Down: A Story from the Heart of Coal Country, by Sally Rubin and Jen Gilomen. Well, good news: It's now set to air on PBS's Independent Lens series on Nov. 23.

The film depicts both the environmental and human conflicts of mountaintop mining in a small Appalachian community, and is garnering critical praise: The San Francisco Examiner has called the documentary "flawlessly filmed and edited," and its storyline  "ingenious."

The filmmakers encourage viewers to host their own screenings, although PBS has provided a comprehensive schedule of the film's multiple showings across the country prior to its TV debut.

Deep Down, which proves that no one is beyond the reach of environmental degredation, should be an important story to anyone who considers themselves eco-aware or a fan of independent film.
