Film Screening: Groundswell Rising

The Justice and Witness Committee of Colonial UCC Church and the Johnson County League of Women Voters are co-sponsoring a screening followed by a discussion with Mark Lichty, Executive Producer. This film is a transcendent tale of epic proportions where ordinary people are making a choice to stand up and protect their community’s and children’s future.

Emmy Award-winning Resolution Pictures captures the passion and courage of people engaged in a David and Goliath confrontation. They stand together, challenging a system that promotes profit over health. We meet mothers, fathers, scientists, doctors, farmers and people from all sides of the political spectrum taking a hard stand against energy extraction techniques not proven to be safe. With the oil and gas industry’s thrust to expand fracking seen as a moral and civil rights issue, this provocative film documents a people’s movement, a groundswell rising.
