Gasland

November 29, 2010 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$12

Winner of the Special Jury Prize for documentary at the 2010 Sundance festival, GASLAND conveys the appeal of authentic Americana in its heartfelt grassroots narrative, but it ultimately traces an unparalleled horror story of environmental disaster in the making. Director Fox sells gas-drilling rights to his family’s land in rural Pennsylvania and discovers the new world of tainted air, pools of toxic waste, and tap-water that lights on fire, thanks to the “fracking” method of gas extraction invented by the notorious Halliburton corporation. Taking off on a lone journey across 24 states, Fox uncovers the shocking, behind-the-royalty-check story of gas drilling, one family at a time. HDCAM video. (BS)
