Gasland to Screen in Clinton, Fayetteville & Little Rock

Don’t miss a great opportunity to learn about the effects of natural gas drilling on our environment by attending one of these screenings of the award-winning documentary, Gasland!

Gasland follows the rise in natural gas exploration in America as a result of new drilling technology known as “fracking.” When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey to uncover the risks associated with the new method.

Winner of the Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize, the film finds what it calls a “trail of secrets, lies and contamination” associated with the natural gas boom.

Founder and artistic director of the International WOW Company, Fox has written, directed and produced two feature films and over 20 works for the stage which have premiered in New York, Asia and Europe.

Josh Fox will be on hand at each event to answer questions.

Times and locations for the three events are:

  • Wednesday, August 18 – 6:30 p.m. – Clinton High School Auditorium, 489 Yellowjacket Lane, Clinton, AR (For more information, contact Donna Adolph, (501) 548-7787, dadolph56@yahoo.com)
