From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what  its  future  should  be  under  the  Trump  Administration.  From  Appalachia  to  the  West’s Powder River Basin, the film 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.


Directed by Michael Bonfiglio. Produced by Sidney Beaumont.
