About the Movie
Blood on the Mountain is a searing investigation into the economic and environmental injustices that have resulted from coal company control in West Virginia. This 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. Blood On The Mountain delivers a striking portrait of a fractured population, exploited and besieged by corporate interests, and abandoned by the powers elected to represent them.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film may be one-sided, but if nothing else, it is a reminder that the "coal equals jobs" equation is a serious oversimplification.
Fresh: The movie is practically a textbook about how ravenous corporations and feckless government can strip-mine the souls of workers, and replace them with a political narrative about their problems that keeps reality forever hidden behind a fine, dusty fog.
Fresh: If you want to spend an hour and a half watching people who are royally screwed, look no further than the new documentary Blood on the Mountain.
Fresh: "Blood on the Mountain" is unapologetic about its one-sided viewpoint: the lawyers, academics and miners interviewed are all pro-union. There may be good reason.
