Goodbye Gauley Mountain
The Future is Female (Directors): All Films • 1h 10m
Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens • USA • 2014 • An ecosexual love story.
Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle have returned to the former's home state of West Virginia. Mountain-top removal, a form of surface mining that destroys local peaks to get at veins of cheap coal below, has devastated the Appalachian mountains. Determined to stop this practice, eco-sexuals Stephens and Sprinkle preach their philosophy in which 'earth as mother' is transformed into 'earth as lover.'
An offbeat, heartfelt embrace of the natural world, Goodbye Gauley Mountain examines the productive intersection between protest and sexuality in one of America's most exploited landscapes.
