GASLAND: Third Thursday Film Screening, July 15th

The Southside Film Institute screens films every third Thursday of the month. Tomorrow, July 15th, they are screening Gasland by filmmaker Josh Fox.

A description for Gasland:

“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?

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.”

Josh Fox will be present after the screening for a Q & A session.

This is Tanya. Crafty lady extraordinaire, devoted wife, and a woman who knows how to work red lipstick so well that glamour girls across the land are envious. Tanya is a Lehigh Valley native, and though she currently resides in Baltimore, she comes back for family visits and has been considering a move back here (let’s encourage her!).

And this is Tanya’s house and all of her incredible STUFF. I have a weakness for midcentury modern furniture and bright colors, and Tanya not only loves those things, she’s been able to collect some lovely pieces and build a home with them.

Join me for an INTERVIEW and a snoop through her house!
