Samara Swanston Appears In "Gasland"

Samara Swanston
Noted environmentalist Samara Swanston, counsel for the New York City Council Committee on  Environmental Protection, appears in 'Gasland,' the HBO documentary on hydraulic fracturing.  Ms. Swanston appears in a scene with James Gennaro, Chairman of the New York City Council Committee on Environmental Protection.

Film Description From Its Website: "The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudia Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown."

GASLAND will be broadcast on HBO through 2012.
