No-Cost Showing of Deep Down

WHYY and The Independent Television Service in cooperation with The Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia are presenting a free showing of Deep Down on November 17th.

Deep Down is a documentary exploring mountaintop removal mining in an Appalachian Kentucky town. The film depicts the struggle of two life-long friends, Beverly May and Terry Ratliffe, caught in the center of the debate dividing their town. This debate revolves around the removal mining specifically. And, in broader terms – who controls, consumes, and benefits from our planet’s shrinking supply of natural resources?

After the screening, WHYY reporter Susan Phillips will moderate a panel discussion about the film and its parallels with the environmental, social and economic issues around drilling in the Marcellus Shale rock formation, which covers a large portion of Pennsylvania and contains large untapped natural gas reserves.

The panel includes :
-Adam Cutler, Director of the Public Health and Environmental Justice Clinic at the Law Center of Philadelphia.
– Christine Knapp of PennFuture
– Tracy Carluccio of the Deleware Riverkeepr Network
-and State Representative Tony Payton Jr.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is REQUIRED. Register at :
http://whyy.convio.net/deepdown.

The event will start at 6:30pm (doors at 6:00pm) at WHYY Public Media Commons at 150 N. 6th Street in Philadelphia.
