Transition Town Guildford August Movie night – Gasland II
The August movie will be the much-anticipated sequel to Gasland. Hydraulic Fracturing is taking off in WA so this is another timely movie.
“A documentary that declares the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth, and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas methane.” 7.7/10 IMDB rating.
As usual, the second Tuesday of the month – Tuesday 12th August
@The Stirling Arms Hotel, 117 James street, Guildford
6 pm onwards for food and drinks, 7 pm Movie, ~8:30 pm finish

Our second movie will be ‘The Yes Men Fix the World’ on Tuesday 13th August. Please join us for food and drinks at the Stirling Arms hotel from 6 pm. Film screening at 7 pm, followed by more time to socialize and chat.

Bring a friend, we hope to see you there,
“THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD is a screwball true story about two gonzo political activists who, posing as top executives of giant corporations, lie their way into big business conferences and pull off the world’s most outrageous pranks.
From New Orleans to India to New York City, armed with little more than cheap thrift-store suits, the Yes Men squeeze raucous comedy out of all the ways that corporate greed is destroying the planet.
Brüno meets Michael Moore in this gut-busting wake-up call that proves a little imagination can go a long way towards vanquishing the Cult of Greed.
Who knew fixing the world could be so much fun?”
