This month's film: Gasland (2010)

In this Oscar-nominated documentary, director Josh Fox journeys across America to examine the negative effects of natural-gas drilling, from poisoned water sources to kitchen sinks that burst into flame to unhealthy animals and people. Is natural gas a viable alternative to the country's dwindling energy resources, or do the potential harmful consequences outweigh the positives? Fox's film raises these and many more probing questions. (Netflix)
(107 mins.)

Each month at this intimate, informal gathering at the hive, we show a film with a message — sometimes entertaining, sometimes political, always inspiring, engaging and thought provoking.

We start the evening with a kind of bring-your-own happy hour and then screen the film after dusk. We'll have healthy, organic popcorn. Please bring something to drink and other food to share if you like.

Open to the public — bring friends. Donations appreciated.
