WALKING IN THE SHOES
OF AN ARRERNTE WOMAN
the September Workshop presented by M.K. TURNER OAM has been
postponed till later in the year.
GASLAND film Screening at Scotland Island
Friday, September 2 at
is the film that woke Australians to the danger of coal seam gas
exploration. Farmers, caretakers of the land and folk, like
offshore dwellers, who love the bush and countryside are uniting behind
organizations like 'Lock the Gate' to protect land and waters.
vérité travelogue, part exposé, part mystery, part showdown, GasLand is
a compelling and emotional first-person story of discovery and,
In September 2006, theatre director and
part-time banjo player Josh Fox received an unexpected letter in the
mail: a natural gas company offering him $100 000 for permission to
explore his family’s upstate New York property, in the lush Delaware
River Basin area.
Rather than join many of his neighbours in
signing on the dotted line, Josh’s curiosity saw him asking questions.
He soon discovered that in the race for ‘cleaner’, greener & more
efficient energy sources, the largest natural gas drilling boom in
history is sweeping the globe, and in the US, the Halliburton-led
drilling technology of hydraulic fracturing (or ‘fracking’) has
unlocked a “Saudi Arabia of natural gas”.
So Josh picked up his
camcorder, and set out on a journey across America’s heartland. His
personal concerns quickly uncover global ones, as the citizens of
‘GasLand’ testify to what’s been happening around them. It becomes
evident that the multi-million dollar business of fracking has
contaminated the water supply, the corporate giants are in cover-up
mode, and the PR-spun government has not only turned a blind eye, it
has regulated itself out of the picture…
Rough-hewn yet poetic,
the film is a desperate plea for scrutiny of a powerful industry that
has now turned its eyes on a new, massive and (for now) largely
unexplored territory: Australia.
GasLand was awarded the Special
Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and
voted the best competition film of any section by indieWIRE’s Sundance
Critics Poll. It has recently received a 2011 Academy Award nomination
for Best Documentary Feature.
A Palace Films release.
Come to the film and share in discussion.
