Overburden (USA, 2015, 66 min.)
A pro-coal activist joins forces with a veteran environmentalist to take on the massive coal company responsible for the death of her brother and 28 other workers in a fiery mining disaster. The story of their seven-year legal battle with Massey Energy, shot in rigorous vérité style, gives voice to the complex social, environmental, and economic situations of an underrepresented West Virginia community, and its historic result sets a hopeful precedent for individuals battling Big Coal in the courtroom. Directed by Chad Stevens and Produced by Catherine Orr and Elena Rue.
