Hard Coal Films to be Screened at the Anthracite Heritage Museum



On Sunday, April 26, 2009, at 1 p.m. the Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum will screen two documentary films. These include Marc Brodzik’s film Hard Coal as well as Chris Perkel and Georgie Roland’s film The Town That Was. The program will be introduced by Dr. J. Philip Mosley, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Penn State Worthington Scranton and member of the Anthracite Heritage Museum and Iron Furnaces Associates. Dr. Mosley will also lead a discussion after each film. A mid-afternoon break will offer refreshments. This film program is free and open to the public.



The film Hard Coal: Last of the Bootleg Miners has won the Best Feature Documentary Award at the 2009 DIY Film Festival in Los Angeles, and an official selection of the 2009 Carolina Film Festival and 2009 Buffalo-Niagara Film Festival. The film The Town That Was is the story of the coal seam fire under the town of Centralia, and the efforts of the youngest remaining resident, John Lokitis, to keep his hometown alive.

Why is everything on a Sunday? :( I'd have gone to that for sure! Scranton's probably the closest that will ever get up this way. Gotta work every Sunday, unfortunately. Spend the morning at St. Mattress then come in to work.

Thanks for posting it up, you're always on top of this stuff. Maybe you can do a Seinfeld-style bootleg for me? :wink: (when Kramer was using a small camera and making boots of movies) If the guy isn't going to release it on DVD, that is.

I hear ya on the Sunday stuff, John.
I think I used up all my vacation days last year by taking every other Sunday off for something.

As for the "bootleg vid..."
If I could figure out to burn it on my imac, I'd send ya a copy.

:(

~Shana <--- I'm on Sal's mailing list, that's why I know when the screenings are.

Thanks Shana. That's nice of ya. I was kidding with the bootleg video. I killed a coupla vacation days down the 9 myself this year, and I'll use up three more for the picnics. Then probably more in the fall to go down and do some more work in there. So I'm sure I'll see you on vacation!

You start mids on Sundays, doing the overnight?
