Gasland- film shoiwng, Wed. April 24th at 7:30pm

Can you light your water on fire?

A documentary film by Josh Fox
at SubRosa, 703 Pacific Ave.
Wed. April 24th at 7:30pm, free

Oil and gas "fracking" is a looming threat to the lands and waters of central and southern California.  Companies are currently rushing to secure drilling rights to the vast Monterey Shale formation, which is estimated to hold 15.4 billion barrels of potentially recoverable oil.

Gasland exposes the dangers of hydraulic fracking.  Part travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part banjo bluegrass meltdown, part showdown.  The film is a cross-country odyssey with unexpected humor, uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination.

The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudia Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe?
