RiverRun Rewind: Life in the Sacrifice Zone Returns to Our Virtual Theater 9/10

Life in the Sacrifice Zone makes a return engagement to RiverRun’s Virtual Theater. The film will open on Friday, September 10th, and be available through Friday, September 24th.  Tickets are on sale HERE.

In his first feature film, Winston-Salem filmmaker Chad Nance highlights an African American community in rural North Carolina who battled systematic racism and one of the world’s largest energy companies. A series of environmental disasters, racist actions by local officials and mysterious medical issues spurred the community into action. Tired of sacrificing their land and lives to the pollution created by the largest coal fired electric plant in North Carolina, they join their efforts and voices to force the biggest coal ash clean up in the history of the US.

Life in the Sacrifice Zone screened at the Marketplace Drive-In and in our virtual theater during the RiverRun 2021 Festival. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch another RiverRun 2021 favorite.

RiverRun launched RiverRun Rewind following the 2021 Festival. These return engagements of Festival favorites in our Virtual Theater provide an opportunity for audiences to see films they might have missed during the Festival or to share films they particularly enjoyed with fellow film fans around the country.
