Deep Down on Independent Lens

Posted on November 23, 2010
Deep Down airs tonight on Independent Lens at 10 PM (check local listings). Set in the Appalachian mountains of eastern Kentucky, the documentary examines one community’s contentious battle over a proposed mountain removal coal mine. Watch Independent Lens tonight as filmmakers Sally Rubin and Jen Gilomen put a human face on the consequences of our environmental impact.

As part of the outreach for Deep Down, the filmmakers created a virtual mine in Second Life to personalize the experience for viewers and to maximize the educational reach of the film. Last week on BTB, we shared one ITVS staff member’s first-hand virtual account. Enjoy the game! And, mark on your calendars a special Second Life screening (space limited) of Deep Down on December 1.
