We recently added Carbon Nation to the DBRL collection. The film played at the Ragtag back in April and currently has a rating of 86% from audiences at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
A documentary movie about climate change SOLUTIONS. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don’t buy it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how SOLUTIONS to climate change also address other social, economic and national security issues.

We recently added Gasland to the DBRL collection. The movie played at the True False Film Festival in 2010 and has received favorable reviews from critics. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
In 2009, filmmaker Josh Fox learned his land was on top of the Marcellus Shale, a giant reservoir of natural gas, and that he would be paid to lease his land for natural gas extraction. Fox documented his cross-country trek to find out if the controversial process of hydraulic fracking is actually safe. What he unearthed was a shocking discovery about a practice that is understudied and inadequately regulated, and raced to find answers about fracking before it was too late.
