Michael Fountain put together a short film a couple of years ago detailing the lives of a father and son living and working in the coal fields of Russell County, Virginia. I have not seen the whole thing but below is a smaller segment portraying the high points of the film. Coal and the work involved in extracting it brings communities and families together across generations, yet the coal dust eventually returns many back down to the dust from which they were taken ( see Gen. 3:19). The camaraderie of work, the commodity of coal, and the cancer of death weave themselves together quite vividly in this segment from Bonecrusher.
