DocuDay New York 2011 Special Event: Gasland

Feb 22, 2011

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 "Saudi 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 with his banjo uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. Gasland embraces many styles of documentary during the journey, combining investigation with passion. Variety proclaimed that Gasland is “one of the most effective and expressive environmental films of recent years.” The film has also sparked a major controversy in the natural gas industry, which the filmmaker will address after the screening.

This event is held in conjunction with the International Documentary Association and kicks-off the weekend screenings of all the documentaries nominated for the Academy Award.
