Join the filmmakers, Lys Sparrow and Gianfranco Serraino as they take you on a journey to explore the possibility that the former residents of Centralia, PA were denied rights. Was the plan to relocate the town a conspiracy so the government could reclaim the precious mineral rights, valued at billions upon billions of dollars? When coal ash was pumped into the mines for a period of seven years in an attempt to extinguish the fire, were the former residents aware of the 67 toxic chemicals that were polluting their air and water?

RED ASH: BurningRights begins as a story about Centralia but becomes the catalyst to a worldwide environmental crisis that is happening right now. Centralia was a town that was built on coal and obliterated by coal. The documentary explores the devastating dangers of coal ash, the by-product of coal-fired power plants that supply more than half the world’s energy. To date, there is no federal regulation on coal ash disposal. “Governments around the world are selling us on “clean coal” but that is deceptive propaganda. The truth is our governments are allowing big corporations to poison our air, our soil and our drinking water as we speak” say the filmmakers Mr. Serraino and Ms. Sparrow.

Come out and join the conversation.  You’ll be surprised to know that coal ash is being dumped in your own backyard!  Share and like our page at
