King Coal

An evocative journey through the past, present, and future of Appalachia, King Coal grapples with the complicated relationship between West Virginia’s families and the coal companies that exercise an iron grip on large swaths of people. Adopting a unique, considered, and creative approach to coal’s influence on the community’s deeply-held identity, this quasi-magical-realist tale glimpses a future beyond coal, delving into the intense pain and overwhelming beauty of a community on the brink of change.
