Documentary on Fracking to be Screened at Moravian

FracknationBethlehem, Pa., April 16, 2013—Moravian College will host a screening of the documentary film “Fracknation” on Thursday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m., in Prosser Auditorium of the Haupert Union Building. The film is presented by the Moravian College IN FOCUS Program Steering Committee, and the Moravian College Accounting Club. The screening is free of charge and the public is welcome.

“Fracknation” is a feature documentary directed by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney. The film discusses the process of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. Fracking is a highly controversial subject, because it is destroying the land and water, yet bringing in a hefty amount of profit. Unlike the film, “GasLand,” which illustrates the negative impact of fracking, “Fracknation” takes a different approach by interviewing people who support fracking and to clear up any misunderstandings about the process.

Prosser Auditorium is in the Haupert Union Building (HUB), near the corner of Monocracy and Locust Streets on Moravian’s Main Street Campus in Bethlehem, Pa. Moravian College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities.
