Gasland at Civic Media Center

Posted by Trish Riley, August 16, 2010

Looking for something to do tonight? Check out the trailer below:

Gasland: “Halliburton has developed a way to get more natural gas out of the ground—a hydraulic drilling process called hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking” for short. Energy companies across rural America are attempting to lease property from residents in order to drill for natural gas.

Filmmaker Josh Fox received a lucrative offer from an energy company wanting to lease his property to tap into a reservoir of natural gas. Fox decided to take his camera and meet other rural residents on the front lines of fracking. He traveled to 32 states and discovered toxic streams, ruined acquifers, dying livestock, brutal illnesses, and kitchen sinks that burst into flames. He learns that all water is connected and perhaps some things are more valuable than money. (Info from sundance film festival).”
