Flooding movie to screen in series


A documentary film profiling Southern West Virginians’ first-hand accounts of coalfields flooding will launch the 2005 season of Mountain State University’s “Appalachian Visions” series.

“Mucked: Man-Made Disasters — Flash Flooding in the Coalfields,” by Charleston filmmaker Bob Gates, will be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday in Carter Auditorium on the MSU campus. Gates will be on hand to introduce his film and field questions and comments following the screening. The screening is free and open to the public.

“Mucked,” which examines flooding in the context of mining and timbering practices, premiered in November 2003 at the American Conservation Film Festival. It won an honorable mention in the investigative reporting category at EarthVision, an international environmental film festival in California.

Regional screenings have included the 2004 Appalachian Studies Conference and the West Virginia State Library Conference, as well as several colleges and universities. It has also been televised in Pittsburgh and Santa Cruz, Calif.

Gates, a former chemical engineer, has earned wide recognition for his films on environmental issues. He received Mid-Atlantic Region Media Fellowships in 1984 and 1994, and was awarded 1995 and 2000 Fellowship Awards for Media Arts by the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.

The 2005 Appalachian Visions series will continue April 7, with “Voices from Appalachia,” a reading with Kentucky and West Virginia writers Bob Sloan, Ben Campbell and James McCoy. On April 15, the annual Appalachian Festival will feature mountain music from The Lillys, who will be joined by Grammy Award-winning banjo picker Marc Pruett, Anita Pruett and other musical guests. All events are free.
