COUDERSPORT – ‘Gasland’, a Sundance award-winning documentary by filmmaker Josh Fox, which details his account of events while embarking on a cross-country investigative tour after being asked to lease his land for the purpose of drilling for natural gas, will air at the Coudersport High School auditorium on November 10.
Gas industry representatives and even some environmental regulatory agents, such as DEP Secretary John Hanger, have highly criticized the film, calling Fox a ‘propagandist’ and saying the film is ‘fundamentally dishonest’, an allegation that Fox disputes to great length and with evidence.
The film has screened across the nation and aired on PBS and currently on HBO.
The film will screen at the Coudersport High School auditorium on Wednesday, November 10 at 7 pm as part of a program outlining environmental topics related to the gas industry.
The program will also include water monitoring and environmental protection presentations by the God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Allegheny Defense Project.
