MIDWEST PREMIERE. FILM DESCRIPTION: Uniquely structured upon the personal storytelling of native West Virginians, “Devil Put The Coal In The Ground” is a meditation on the suffering and devastation brought on by the coal industry and its decline. From the realities of a crumbling economy, to the ravages of the opioid epidemic, to the irreparable environmental damage and its tragic impact on human health—the film is a cautionary tale of unfettered corporate power, and an elegy to a vanishing Appalachia.
