Blood on the Mountain, 93 min, Filmmakers: Mari-Lynn Evans, Jordan Freeman — Blood on the Mountain is a searing investigation into the economic and environmental injustices that have resulted from industrial control in West Virginia. This new feature documentary details the struggles of a hard-working, misunderstood people, who have historically faced limited choices and have never benefited fairly from the rich, natural resources of their land. This film delivers a striking portrait of a fractured population, exploited and besieged by corporate interests and abandoned by the powers elected to represent them. 6:30 pm Friday at the Byrd Center for Legislative Studies, Block 1
