Overburden by Chad A. Stevens

Meet two unforgettable women—a fiery, pro-coal right-winger and a tenacious, environmentalist grandmother—whose lives collide when a mine disaster shatters their community. Filmed over seven years, the pair’s courageous story underscores the need for reconciliation as they take on a rogue industry to help heal their Appalachian Mountain community. (60 min.)

A collaboration between UNC-TV and SCETV, and the Southern Documentary Fund (SDF), REEL SOUTH includes half-hour and hour-long independent, documentary films about the American South. The six acclaimed films of the pilot season have recently premiered at film festivals and theaters, building buzz and audiences. REEL SOUTH now brings these films to a national audience hungry for authentic stories from one of the most unique corners of America.
