As part of a national grassroots tour, filmmaker Josh Fox will present GASLAND II at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz on Monday June 3rd, prior to its HBO release. The film will be followed by a presentation and Q&A with director Josh Fox and local anti-fracking organizers.
In 2010, the Oscar-nominated documentary GASLAND exposed “fracking,” an oil and gas extraction method that has led to a national environmental and public health crisis. Gasland made fracking a household word and catalyzed a worldwide movement of grassroots opposition that has led to local and state-wide moratoriums and bans.
In Gasland II, Josh Fox delves deeper in to the effects of this once-touted energy source, as well as the industry’s equally disturbing smear campaigns and lawsuits. Unnerving interviews, shocking data and unexpected humor underscore this scathing indictment of unregulated industry in Fox’s powerful, not-to-be-missed follow-up.
Fracking Threatens California:
The fracking boom now looms over California, where oil companies have been buying up drilling rights in the Monterey Shale formation that underlies much of the Central CA Coast. Come to this screening to learn more about the national and international anti-fracking movement and how you can become involved right here in the Monterey Bay area.
