Gasland

opctj-slide13_gasland

GASLAND reveals a web of secrets, lies, conspiracy, and contamination.

Part mystery, part travelogue, and part banjo showdown, Gasland documents filmmaker Josh Fox's

cross-country odyssey to find out if the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing - or fracking - is actually

safe. As he interviews people who live on or around current fracking sites, Josh learns of things gone horribly

wrong, from illness to hair loss to flammable water, and his inquiries lead him ever deeper into a web of

secrets, lies, conspiracy, and contamination - a web that potentially stretches to threaten the New York Watershed.

Unearthing a shocking story about a practice that is understudied and inadequately regulated, Gasland races

to find answer about fracking before it's far too late.

 

 Following the showing there will be a brief presentation by Doug Burke, of Oak Park Energy Initiative, and

Dr. Clare Butterfiled, of Faith in Place, and Q &A and open discussion.

Co-sponsoring organizations:

Green Sanctuary Committee of Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation;

Oak Park Energy Initiative; Faith in Place; and the Environment and Energy Commission).

Light refreshments are served.
