Cost is free, but please register in advance, as space is limited: http://tfcmovienight.eventbrite.ca/. We’ll be watching Gasland – “Gasland is an urgent, cautionary and sometimes      darkly  comic look at the largest domestic  natural gas  drilling  campaign in history, which is  currently sweeping  the U.S.  and promising landowners a quick payoff. Part  verité road  trip,  part exposé, part mystery and part  showdown,  Gasland follows director Fox on a 24-state  investigation of  the environmental effects of hydraulic  fracturing. What he  uncovers is mind-boggling…..”
