BENOFF: Fracking The System

July 12 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets

BOULDER BASED FILMMAKER BRIAN HEDDEN WILL JOIN US FOR A POST-FILM DISCUSSION.

When a fracking well got moved from a white neighborhood to a BIPOC neighborhood, a mother joins the fight to try and stop it. She eventually joins the state-wide effort to change the law but the oil and gas industry does everything they can to fight back.

Directed by Brian Hedden | Runtime: 92 mins

Brian Hedden has been an activist and filmmaker since the age of 11 when he made his first environmental public service announcement video. He went on to train as a filmmaker, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts. In 2010, he started a San Diego-based production company, making videos about sustainable businesses and non-profit organizations. After becoming immersed in local activism, Brian took a hiatus from filmmaking to study mediation, farming, teaching, and more. After calibrating his inner compass, he returned to filmmaking in 2016 to express what he had learned, and was soon engaged in the subject that became his first feature documentary, Fracking the System: Colorado’s Oil and Gas Wars. Now, as a result of his learnings from the film, Brian is pioneering a social media app for constructive political engagement: Stump.
