The film, nominated in 2011 for an Academy Award for Best Documentary, brings into the public realm another specter of collusion between private enterprise and government.&nbsp;Josh is currently finalizing release of his forthcoming film "Gasland2" which continues his assertions of political interference with sustainable energy wisdom and of our public mistrust of the systems intended to protect us.&nbsp; He concludes that fracking &ldquo;does not just contaminate the water supply, but also government.&nbsp; All the money that's spent, all the influence that's peddled: this is the contamination of the political system."&nbsp;Colorado has one of the largest natural gas reserves in the world.&nbsp; Its residents have a vested interest in understanding Josh&rsquo;s claims before permitting lawmakers to pass further legislation allowing fracking in their own backyards.&nbsp;</p> Amnesty International Film Screening and Discussion: "The New Americans: Helping Teachers and Other Professionals Meet the Needs of Immigrant Families" Tue, 16 Oct 2012 17:35:39 MDT <p><em>Wednesday, November 14, 2012 7:00 PM</em></p><p>CC's Amnesty International student group presents a thought-provoking documentary film screening, followed by a discussion.
