Fighting Goliath: Texas Coal Wars

Narrated by Robert Redford. A film by Mat Hames and George Sledge

“This 30 minute documentary is ideal for an event followed by a panel discussion. We presented it to a theater audience of nearly 2,000 and there were several standing ovations. It's a moving story about people, the environment, and what you can do.”

— Randall Morton
President, The Progressive Forum, Houston

Host A Screening

The film has proven to be an important tool for educating and inspiring activists, business leaders, policymakers, lawyers, ranchers, teachers, doctors, students, and everyday citizens to get involved in stopping the rush to build conventional coal-fired power plants that use outmoded, polluting technology.
