“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? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination…..

Doors open at 7PM and as usual we’ll be showing a selection of media activist and citizen journalist produced film shorts until 7.30pm.

Gasland showing starts at 7.30PM sharp after which we shall table a discussion on the various themes raised in the film.

Evening finishes at 10PM, at which juncture we may ajourn to a local ale house for continued discussion and refreshment.

December 2011: DIVE! Living off America’s Waste

On Sunday 4th December starting at 7.30pm, we’ll be screening DIVE! Living Off America’s Waste.  Inspired by the curiosity about the US’s careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the film follows Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angels’ supermarkets.

We will also be showing a collection of the latest independent citizen produced short films and pieces from around the web.

Doors open at 7pm, film starts promptly at 7.30pm followed by discussion.  The evening ends at just before 10pm, where we may ajourn to a local ale house for continued discussion and refreshment.
