On March 30th we are having a Benefit Dinner, Lecture and Film Screening for our upcoming documentary feature, Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story. This will take place at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 (btw 9th and 10th Streets).

Be the first to see Goodbye Gauley Mountain—An Ecosexual Love Story, the new ecosexy documentary film about how Sprinkle & Stephens came to take the Earth as their lover, marry the Appalachian Mountains, and join a group of brave activists in the fight to stop mountain top removal coal mining destruction.

What they’re saying about the film…

The film Goodbye Gauley Mountain weaves together the topics of sex, class, hillbillyism, queerness, capitalism and nature into a epic tale that will make you proud to be called a dirty environmentalist. This is, without compare, the sexiest nature documentary and one of the most profound films to deal with the beauty and tragedy of the Appalachian Mountains in the age of King Coal. It’ll make you fighting mad, then you’ll laugh, then you’ll get turned on. Hopefully you’ll fall wildly in love and get out there and defend your Lover Earth with a lust befitting the world’s most ancient and biodiversely kinky mountains.
