Arizona Physicians for Social Responsibility will be a co-sponsor of the viewing of the Sundance Film Festival's "Official Selection" award winning new film "The Last Mountain". 

This dramatic documentary film, produced by Robert Kennedy Jr,  depicts the devastating consequences of mountaintop removal mining of coal in Appalachia.   These include severe environmental impacts, effects on human health and the future of jobs in these communities.  View the trailer for the film at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao-2XzU3cAw
