Film Clips from Romania’s Petrilla Mine

After Coal author and director Tom Hansell participated in the 2019 Appalachian / Carpathian: Mountains Apart, People Connected conference last month. Conference participants were fortunate to tour the former Petrilla mine and learn how local people, led by former mine engineer Ion Barbu, developed a guerrilla arts campaign to save the mine structures from demolition. They see the former mine as an asset to support the community’s transitions to life after coal. Hansell shot super 8 film on the mine tour. Here is a link to this short travelogue PetrillaOctober2019 from Tom Hansell on Vimeo.
