Reminder: Screening of National Geographic 'From the Ashes' film on Friday

Submitted by Kylie Kinley


K-State students and community members will have a chance to attend a special screening of the film "From the Ashes," a groundbreaking new documentary that goes beyond the rhetoric of the war on coal.

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

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. 

Questions about the screening should be directed to Nick Homburg, instructor of journalism and mass communications, at nhomburg@k-state.edu.
