The Tree of Life Green Sanctuary Committee returns after a hiatus with a showing of the award winning documentary Gasland at 7pm, Friday, November 18 at the church, 5603 Bull Valley Road in McHenry.
Gasland is the 2010 documentary written and directed by Josh Fox. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2011, the film focuses on American communities affected by natural gas drilling especially hydraulic fracturing—the method of horizontal drilling into shale formations . The film helped mobilize the anti-fracking movement.
