Advance Screening of Gasland II in Santa Cruz with Director Josh Fox
Sequel to Gasland Delves Deeper into Health and Environmental Consequences of Fracking
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 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.

“‘Gasland 2’ features real people – ordinary Americans – whose lives have been upended by the dirty and dangerous process of fracking.” Fox said.

Central Coast Rising, a new local organization raising awareness about fracking, chose to plan the screening with Fox to grow the anti-fracking movement in the U.S. 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. This screening and Q&A intends to delve deeper about the national and international anti-fracking movement and how individuals can become involved right here in the Monterey Bay area.
