DIRECTOR’S SCREENING OF GASLAND II AND Q&A
We are extremely fortunate to have Josh Fox himself (all the way from Pennsylvania) attending this screening of his film GASLAND II on Wednesday 23rd October.
If you remain in any doubt about the realities of fracking and the dangers of the ecocidal unconventional fossil fuel industry – which our government has already potentially licensed to roll out across more than 60% of the UK (with several planning applications already made across the Kent and Sussex Weald) .. then come – see for yourself what we’re collectively up against.
Josh has been working tirelessly on this issue around the world for four years now. If you have a question, this is the chance to ask it.
Please do spread the word as far as you can to those you feel might need/want to be there. (If you need an email to forward, and/or can help with local flyering/postering – please let us know).
It is a large capacity venue, but the event could be very popular and we will be bound by fire regulations on numbers that can be allowed in, so do come in good time to be sure of a seat.
The screening is free, but we do need to ask for donations to cover the cost of venue/equipment hire etc. and would be grateful for your help if possible please, thank you.
“In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar®-nominated film GASLAND, filmmaker Josh Fox uses his trademark dark humour to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global level (in 32 countries worldwide).
GASLAND PART II, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film argues that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas, methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in Fox’s words “contaminating our democracy”.
The screening will start promptly at 7.30 pm in the Jordan Hall of the Jubilee Community Centre, Charlwoods Road, East Grinstead, West Sussex, RH19 2HL.
(It is a 12 minute walk from East Grinstead Train Station).
