Haynesville Documentary Showing in New Orleans

If you happen to find yourself in south Louisiana in the next couple of weeks, stop by the 21st annual New Orleans Film Festival. There will be two showings of the documentary "Haynesville" by Gregory Kallenberg.  It is showing at Canal Place Theaters at 12:15 p.m on Sunday October 17 and again at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday October 21.

While you're there, check out "On Coal River" a documentary that makes you realize that the environmental dangers of coal mining far surpass the worst case scenario of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas (Oct. 17 at 2:45 p.m and Oct. 21 at 7:45 p.m.).

I Saw his documentary at a YPE event in Houston a while back (right after it came out). If you want to go see this film, expect to be pissed off afterwards. It is 60-75% environmentalist and maybe 25-40% Energy Industry friendly. Some of my friends felt differently and some were more pissed off than i was. I'm just saying, be prepared. i.e. the film frequently alludes to a shot of a rig at dusk, with ominous music playing in the background, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with the film. My opinion: its only worth seeing if it's free. Good Luck!

If "Haynesville" pissed you off, I can't imagine how you will feel after seeing "Gasland."
