“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.”

Winner of numerous awards, director Josh Fox’s expose of the environmental crime known as Fracking has sparked outrage and determined protest wherever it has been shown.
Join us for a showing of this inspiring movie and a discussion of what we can do to stop fracking in its tracks in the UK before our water is poisoned and our carbon footprint goes through the roof.
We will be showing the film at 7 pm in Room 2 at the Swarthmore Centre (2-7 Woodhouse Square Leeds, LS3 1AD · The centre is wheelchair accessible – phone 0113 243 2210 to arrange an accessible parking space).
