The Human Cost of Fracking

Groundswell RisingOn Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m., Conscientious Projector joins the national conversation and protest over the tragic damage to people and the environment caused by hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, with a screening of the new documentary Groundswell Rising: Protecting Our Children’s Air and WaterThe Resolution Pictures feature by the veteran producing-directing team of brothers Matt and Renard Cohen will show at Armory Center for the Arts. Actor/activist Mark Ruffalo has said of the film, “Besides the incredible information on fracking’s detriment to our health it is also a great look into what it is like to live in a town with fracking in the backyard. This film should be watched by everyone on the side of industry and those considering leasing their land to the gas companies. Plain and simply, it’s the human side of this debate.”

A community discussion follows the film. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
