Movie Night: “GASLAND”

December 8, 2011. Monroe Community College.

Part mystery, part travelogue, and part banjo show, GASLAND documents Josh’s cross-country odyssey to find out if the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing — or fracking —  is actually safe.

Traveling across 24 states to interview families, EPA whisleblowers, congressmen and scientists in vast drilling areas, Josh learns of things gone horribly wrong, from illness to hair loss to flammable water. 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 answers about fracking before it is far too late.
