Gasland - UK Premiere and Release


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcxVNiMhd5A



Synopsis

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. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.


Competition

We are offering you the chance to meet director Josh Fox at the UK premiere on Monday 17 January at London's ICA. To win a pair of tickets, please let us know the answer to the following question:
Q:Which Hollywood actor was recently placed on a terrorist watch-list for his open support of Josh Fox's GASLAND?

Please send your answers to terry@dogwoof.com by midday on Wednesday 12 January and we will pick a winner at random. There are also some premiere tickets available direct from the ICA Box Office, but be quick - we anticipate them selling out fast!

If you can't join us on the 17th, please find a full list of the upcoming screenings, including other Q&As with Josh, at gaslandmovie.co.uk.

Best wishes,

The Dogwoof Team

"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?
