“The Last Mountain” documentary at Carnegie

The Carnegie Center for Art and History, 201 E. Spring St. in New Albany, 812-944-7336, is showing “The Last Mountain,” a spellbinding tour along the front lines of America’s most spirited battle over the environment and the economy. Set deep in the heart of Appalachian West Virginia, this consciousness-raising film captures a rowdy band of citizens as they try to stop a giant coal company from blowing up a pristine mountain for its coal. The daring solution proposed by this small Appalachian community takes on national significance when Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. joins the Appalachian families to fight the extraordinary and insidious power of Big Coal. “The Last Mountain” was an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and the 2011 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Free and open to the public. 7-9 p.m.
