Saturday October 19th 2013 – 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Oak Park Library - Maze Branch 845 Gunderson Ave, Oak ParkIn this explosive follow-up to his oscar-nominated film, Gasland, filmmaker Josh Fox uses his trademark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of extracting oil and natural gas, now occuring on a global scale. Ready to see for your self? Plan to be there on Saturday afternoon at the Maze Branch of the Oak Park Public Library.
If you thought the fight against Fracking was over in Illinois, it's time to think again. The debate is hotter than ever and groups across the state are igniting in a global day of action on October 19th. In Oak Park, Food & Water Watch is screening Gasland Part II, a documentary that will show you what all of the fuss is about.
Gasland Part II, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation, and especially Illinois, today.
RSVP HERE to let us know you're coming! We look forward to seeing you there!
