Announcing a new Meetup for Nashville Sustainability Events Group!

What: FREE Movie Screening: "God's Mountains: Faith, Justice, and Mountaintop Removal"

When: Friday, November 5,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Lipscomb University, Ezell Center
One University Park Drive (Building Behind Beaman Library)
Nashville, TN 37215

On Friday, November 5, Lipscomb University will host "God's Mountains: Faith, Justice, and Mountaintop Removal," a screening and discussion featuring the documentary Deep Down and an opportunity to meet the film's director and interact with leaders from Nashville faith communities about a pressing environmental issue.

The free event is scheduled for 2:30-4:30 pm in room 107 of the Ezell Center on the Belmont Avenue side of Lipscomb campus.

Evoking the beauty and tradition of Appalachia, Deep Down explores the complex issue of mining by mountaintop removal, a practice pitting energy needs and the lure of short-term gain against preserving the natural world. Scheduled for broadcast nationwide in November as part of the PBS Independent Lens series, the Lipscomb event offers the special chance to talk to co-director Sally Rubin and take away concrete suggestions for communities interested in probing mountaintop removal from the perspective of their own tradition. See

"God's Mountains: Faith, Justice, and Mountaintop Removal" is presented by Lipscomb's social-justice documentary series, HumanDocs, in partnership with ITVS Community Cinema. Following the Friday event at Lipscomb will be two additional screenings of Deep Down. ITVS Community Cinema shows the film on Saturday, November 6, 3:00 pm (2:30 reception), Nashville Public Library. Lipscomb's HumanDocs will host a public screening on Wednesday, November 10, 8:30 pm, in the university's Shamblin Theater. Both screenings are free and open to all.

If possible, to facilitate planning, please e-mail or phone Ted Parks, HumanDocs co-curator, with your plans to attend: [address removed],[masked] (cell).
