Feb 13: Gas Rush Stories screening and community conversation

On the second Thursday of each month (Feb 13, Mar 13, Apr 10), join filmmaker Kirsi Jansa for a screening of several episodes of GRS, along with a community conversation.

Shale gas exploration is one of The Environmental Issues of our time and place. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court made history by declaring major provisions of the state's new oil and gas act, Act 13, unconstitutional. Governor Corbett's administration filed an appeal. But what does shale gas exploration look like from the perspective of the people who are first-hand experiencing the impacts of the shale gas boom? 
Gas Rush Stories, a series of short documentaries tells stories how shale gas drilling has changed and is changing the lives of individual Pennsylvanians. Gas Rush Stories also takes a wider perspective in this issue: How is shale gas exploration changing Pennsylvania landscape? How is shale gas exploration impacting the development of renewable energy? Gas Rush Stories is produced by independent journalist and filmmaker Kirsi Jansa and funded by The Heinz Endowments and individual donors.

7-9 p.m. at Point Breezeway, 7113 Reynolds St.  Suggested donation: $5-15 (no one turned away for lack of funds).  Wine and popcorn provided.
