From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the Trump Administration. From Appalachia to the West's Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the "war on coal" to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what's at stake for our economy, health, and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.

From the Ashes features our own Mayor Ed Lee discussing San Francisco’s renewable energy goals and achievements.

"Heartbreaking and enlightening at the same time. A must-watch for everyone because we should all be in this together." ~ Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry
