Directed by Tom Hansell

What happens when fossil fuels run out? How do communities and cultures   survive?

After Coal profiles inspiring individuals who are building a new future in the coalfields of eastern Kentucky and South Wales. This hour long documentary invites viewers to the front lines of the transition away from fossil fuels.

Shot on location in Harlan County, Kentucky, and the Dulais Valley of South Wales, After Coal introduces viewers to ex-miners using theater to rebuild community infrastructure, women transforming a former coal board office into an education hub, and young people striving to stay in their home communities. The stories of coalfield residents who must abandon traditional livelihoods illustrate the challenge of creating a sustainable future. Music plays a major role in this documentary essay, linking the two regions and demonstrating how cultural traditions can help create a brighter future.
