FREE MOVIES on the Gold King Mine Spill of 2015

Sunday, September 26th, 2021

12:30pm - 6:30pm
Animas City Theatre, Durango, 81301

"ACID MINE NATION" is a video series on the Gold King Mine Spill of 2015. This was when the EPA broke open a mine near Silverton. The Animas River turned orange. It met the San Juan River in NM.

In 2014, Tom Schillaci started the video, "ACID MINE NATION". It was going to be the little story if Silverton and San Juan County CO went for Superfund intervention to clean up some draining mines in the Silverton Volcano. Then the mine spill happened, and it flipped Tom's story upside down. And it flipped a lot of lives upside down. He calls these videos "Opinumentary", as they are not straight documentary. Tom has his opinions, and he shares them. "Opinumentary". EPISODE 3 talks about New Mexico's reaction, with some Navajo Nation and Utah reaction. EPISODE 4 is The Navajo Effect.

Animas City Theatre requires that patrons show proof of vaccination or be tested negative for C-19 up to 48 hours prior to Show.
