12/8: Newfield PAUSE Screening with Reunion Panel

PAUSE, People Advocating the Use of Sustainable Energy, was founded by Newfield, NY residents concerned about the impacts of shale gas extraction on our town and region. PAUSE seeks to create a world in which people, animals, plants, and all communities flourish. We are excited to announce that PAUSE is organizing a screening of Empowered on December 8th, which will feature a jam-packed panel reuniting many of the Tompkins County residents featured in the film. We’ll have DVDs of the film and YIMBY signs for sale – they make great holiday gifts! Hope to see you on the 8th…

Empowered DVD now available

Since we’re environmentalists, we don’t really like making products and shipping things around – we prefer things to be done online when possible. But we’ve had a lot of requests for the DVD, and they are useful for community screenings and gifts. So, we’re now selling DVDs! They’re made in as low-impact a way as we can manage, burned right here at Shirari Industries (a.k.a. the director’s living room), and folded into handmade paper packets (no plastic cases).

  • DVD Ithaca Pick Up $10 (we’ll leave it at the Shaleshock office at the Workers Center, above Autumn Leaves Used Books on the Commons in Ithaca, for you to pick up)
  • DVD U.S. $15
  • DVD International $20
