Working Films’ Reel Power and Josh Fox Bring “Gasland 2” to Texas and North Carolina

September 25th, 2013 by Kristin Henry

Director Josh Fox is headed on a Southern Grassroots Tour with Gasland 2, the recent follow-up to his 2011 Academy Award-nominated documentary Gasland. We are psyched to announce that as part of our Reel Power efforts we have teamed up with grassroots groups in Texas and North Carolina to co-host 4 stops on the tour.

Gasland 2 features real people – ordinary Americans – whose lives have been upended by the dirty and dangerous process of fracking.” Fox said. “That’s why I’m working with environmental leaders and advocates across the country to protect our health, water, climate and landscapes and to prevent state and federal governments from allowing a path to destruction. We need to educate ourselves and our elected leaders and ban this toxic practice and move vigorously toward renewable energy.”

The film was recently broadcast on HBO and folks are keenly anticipating the release of the DVD for wide-spread community and educational screenings. “The timing and profile of the film will really help us shine the spotlight on the urgent efforts and actions by groups working on the ground,” stated Kristin Henry, who is leading the Reel Power efforts with Working Films.

Here are the details for the Texas and North Carolina Gasland 2 screenings!

    Greetings,
    I’m wanting to know if it is possible to do some screenings of Gasland2 in Canada. Is there a Canadian distributor?

    I’m with the World Community Film Festival and our 23rd festival is scheduled for Feb. 1, 2014. Then we offer films to our partners in our traveling film fest in mostly smaller (with the exception of Vancouver and Winnipeg) communities across Canada for the following year.
    Thanks,
