Documentary film "From the Ashes" to be screened at K-State Union

The A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications will host a free, public screening of the film "From the Ashes" on Friday, March 9 at 6 p.m. in the Wildcat Chamber in the K-State Union.

Presented by the National Geographic Channel, the film takes a compelling and often heartbreaking look at what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for our future. The film, produced by RadicalMedia and in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, was a 2017 Tribeca Film Festival Official Selection. This is a groundbreaking new documentary that goes beyond the rhetoric of the "war on coal." Audience discussion will follow the screening.
