Buffalo Preview Screening For "Dear President Obama"


The filmmaker who brought "Dear Governor Cuomo" is back again with another new socially, environmentally conscious film that speaks to the need for #EnergyDemocracy. 

Jon Bowermaster will be in town this coming Monday, March 9th, from 7pm-9pm at the Buffalo State College's Bulger Communications Building for a special preview screening and Q&A for his new film "Dear President Obama." The event is FREE and is being sponsored in part by Western New York Drilling Defense.

From Western New York Drilling Defense:

Jon Bowermaster is the filmmaker of influential music-protest film “Dear Governor Cuomo,” which played a role in moving Governor Andrew Cuomo to act against fracking in New York State. In his new film, "Dear President Obama: Americans Against Fracking In One Voice,” Bowermaster takes on President Barack Obama with a national look at the issue of fracking. The film profiles the victims of fracking across the U.S., speaks with experts on the topic, and takes a look at alternative energy sources gaining traction around the globe.

Bowermaster is bringing his upcoming film-in-the-works to Buffalo State College for a FREE preview. Following the film will be a Q&A session with filmmaker Jon Bowermaster, as well as representatives from Food & Water Watch, NYPIRG, and Frack Action who will bring Western New Yorkers up to speed on what's transpired in the state since the Cuomo administration's decision to ban fracking on December 17th. Grab a friend or family member and join us on March 9th.

Co-sponsors of the event include NYPIRG at Buffalo State, Food & Water Watch, Western NY Drilling Defense, New Yorkers Against Fracking, and Frack Action.
