MAPLEWOOD, NJ - SOMA Film Festival in partnership with The Woodland will screen two highly acclaimed feature documentaries Blood on the Mountain and Art and Craft, on Thursday, September 7, and Thursday, December 7, respectively, as part of new independent film endeavor titled, “2 Nights Only," according to a press release from SOMA Film Festival.
The documentary Blood on the Mountain is described in the release as "a timely look into Trump’s America and literally a groundbreaking investigation into the economic and environmental injustices that have resulted from industrial control in West Virginia. It eloquently details the struggles of a hard-working, often misunderstood people, who have historically faced limited choices and have never benefited fairly from the rich, natural resources of their own land but have been exploited by corporate interests, and abandoned by the powers elected to represent them."
“Blood on the Mountain is an extraordinary film and an excellent opportunity for our towns to better understand and empathize with the people of this ravaged region of America,” stated SOMA Film Fistival director Matt Smollon.
Director Mari-Lynn C. Evans, and producer Deborah Wallace (Gasland II) wil both attend and participate in a detailed Q and A session after the film.
Tickets for this event are $10, and includes free soda, popcorn, beer and pretzels. To purchase or learn more click here.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to Coal River Mountain Watch, an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to ceasing mountain top removal in Appalachia.
