This award-winning documentary from Act Out's Eleanor Goldfield takes you into the often forgotten hills and hollers of West Virginia, where a radical past inspires a resilient present and builds towards a better future. More than a microcosm of capitalist oppression and corruption, West Virginia stands as an example of radical resolve - in the face of dying King Coal and rising King Fracking.

It's a Hard Road of Hope, a pot-holed, precarious, and puddled path past the Kings of coal and gas, but they keep walking. We would do well to walk with them for a while – and listen.


Any amount that you give to purchase your ticket will benefit FracTracker Alliance, Hard Road of Hope, and Keeper of the Mountains, an organization that educates and inspires people to work for healthier, more sustainable communities and an end to dependency on fossil fuels, mountaintop removal, and other forms of extraction.


The panel discussion on Thursday, February 11th, at 7pm was moderated by Ted Auch, Great Lakes Regional Coordinator, FracTracker Alliance
