Rockaway Artists Alliance – sTudio 7 Gallery

Join the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy for a free film screening!

From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be in the current political climate. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate.

A compelling look at the lives and issues behind the “war on coal,” From the Ashes premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and the National Geographic Channel.

FREE refreshments will be served. Stay after the film for a Q&A with the producers. 
This event is being hosted in partnership with the Rockaway Artists Alliance
