Transitions Film Festival, 'Promised Land' premiere screening

There are some big names here. A film directed by Gus Van Sant, based on a story written by Dave Eggers, starring Matt Damon and Jon Krasinski and about induced hydraulic fracturing. In short: Gus, Dave, Matt, Jon and fracking. It's part of the Transitions Film Festival, which is part of the Sustainable Living Festival, which is part of a broader attempt to get our shit together as far as this planet goes. The movie is Promised Land. Drew Hutton of Lock The Gate and John Wiseman of the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute will be speaking at this, its Australian premiere screening.
