Free showing of “Gaslands” movie

The SSJ Sierra Club is sponsoring a showing of the documentary film “Gaslands”. The film will be shown at 7:00 pm on Friday, May 6, at the Civic Media Center, 433 South Main St in Gainesville.

“Gaslands” received a special jury prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated in 2011 for an Acadamy award. It has been shown on PBS.

The film sites the effects that natural gas drilling has on the regional water quality and on human health.
