Gasland ― Wednesday, April 11 at the Tally Ho Theatre in Leesburg.
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.
The event starts at 6:30 pm with refreshments and conversation and the film begins at 7:30 pm.
By attending the event you will be supporting environmental film in Loudoun County as well as directly funding our local environmental non-profit organizations.
Tickets to the event cost $10.00 and all money from the ticket sales will be donated equally to five local environmental nonprofits: Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship, Keep Loudoun Beautiful, Sustainable Loudoun, and the Friends of Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve.
The film series, organized by Greenflik, will run monthly through June of this year with hopes of starting back up again in the Fall.
If you can’t make the film, you can send a high school or college student to the films in your place by purchasing tax-deductible tickets online. Preview the movie and find out more details about the event here.
