Gasland – film screening

6.30pm, 5th March at the Cargill Lecture Theatre, University of Lincoln

As a lead up to National Science Week the University’s Environment Team are hosting a series of events focused on fracking.  The first film in the series is Gasland.  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. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.  http://gaslandmovie.co.uk/
This is just a screening of the film there is no talk or Q&A afterwards.  This is because we will have further film on Wednesday 12th March at 6.30pm in the Cargill Lecture Theatre.  The next film will be a response to Gasland called Fracknation.  The week after that there will be a debate about fracking.

beautiful, Jeremy takes us on a journey to explore the risks to the food
