Mountaintop mining is one of the most important environmental issues taking place in America today, but many aren’t aware of the dire consequences that go along with the dangerous coal mining tactic. A soon-to-be released environmental documentary will hopefully change that.

The new film, The Last Mountain, directed by Bill Haney and featuring anti-mountaintop mining spokesman Robert Kennedy Jr, was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and will be debuting in theatres across the United States beginning next week.

Watch the official trailer below:
