FROM THE ASHES
From Appalachia to the West's Powder River Basin, From the Ashes goes beyond the rhetoric of the "war on coal" to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what's at stake for our economy, health, and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.

STRAWS (opening for FROM THE ASHES)
Every year billions of plastic straws wind up in landfills, litter streets and wash into oceans. Actor/Director Tim Robbins narrates the history and story of STRAWS, and marine researchers, citizen activists, and business owners discuss how it's possible to make a sea of change, one straw at a time.
