Screening of Movie GASLAND and Meet Director Josh Fox: June 16th

You are invited to a Private Screening of the Movie
JUNE 16, 7:00 pm at Cooperstown High School
39 Linden Avenue, Cooperstown, NY

Meet Josh Fox and learn about the impacts of natural gas drilling on our air, water, communities and environment.

When filmmaker Josh Fox discovers that Natural Gas drilling is coming to his area the Catskills-Poconos Region of Upstate New York and Pennsylvania, he sets off on a 24 state journey to uncover the deep consequences of the United States' natural gas drilling boom. What he uncovers is truly shocking - water that can be lit on fire right out of the sink, chronically ill residents of drilling areas from disparate locations in the US all with the same mysterious symptoms, huge pools of toxic waste that kill cattle and vegetation well blowouts and huge gas explosions consistently covered up by state and federal regulatory agencies. These are just a few of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND.

Josh Fox will be here in person to answer questions after the film viewings. Gasland is the Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. This showing was sponsored by Otsego 2000, Sustainable Otsego, OCCA, and Advocates for Springfield.
