About the Movie
A cross between “The Last Waltz” and “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Dear Governor Cuomo” captures a concert organized on the doorstep of the New York state governor to protest the lifting of a four-year moratorium against hydraulic fracturing (fracking). The event brought together scientists, musicians, activists and actors in a scripted night onstage inviting the governor to join the anti-fracking majority in his home state. The film that resulted – written and directed by Jon Bowermaster, with musical direction by Natalie Merchant, and featuring Mark Ruffalo, Melissa Leo, Joan Osborne, Citizen Cope, Medeski Martin and Wood and many more – is equal parts message and music.
I happened upon this documentary in iTunes and I can't talk about it enough. I knew absolutely nothing about fracking before watching this and it still held my attention throughout. If you are looking for a night with a good film, it is hard to do better than this.
