Cheshire, Ohio: An American Coal Story in 3 Acts
November 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Eco-Film Series will premiere the film “Cheshire, Ohio: An American Coal Story in 3 Acts” on Friday, Nov. 9 at Cross and Crown Lutheran Church, 5233 E. 79th St. This film follows a community devastated by coal, starting with the American Electric Power’s buyout and bulldozing of this Ohio River town after exposing the residents to years of harmful emissions. This 75-minute film, which has won numerous awards, is a story of the increasingly difficult choices we face about coal and the environment and the need for clean energy.
The Eco- Film Series is sponsored by five northeast side churches called The Shalom Zone who work together on projects. A grant from Sierra Club will pay for the cost of the film. Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign is gearing up for 2019 in the fight for clean energy. There is no admission cost, and there will be free refreshments.
