Midlands residents urged to watch film on the high cost of cheap gas


At 6.30 pm on November 19, Mistbelt Movies will be screening The High Cost of Cheap Gas at the Lions River Club in the Dargle.

This documentary follows producer, Mira Dutschke, and director, Jeffrey Barbee, around the world as they examine the debate around natural gas development in Southern Africa and why it affects us all.

Secret fracking operations have been conducted in Africa’s most protected National Parks. The team uncovers these operations and brings hard evidence to light that startles policy makers. This is the international underbelly of the energy business, but there is hope.

You can also see a short of the film on http://youtu.be/S0bbK4yy4nI

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session facilitated by Jeffrey Barbee, the director.

Entry is R25 for the film and a further R25 for homemade soup. Booking is essential – RSVP to Pam Haynes at dart@sai.co.za or 083 456 9202.
