DEAR GOVERNOR CUOMO

Jon Bowermaster

(USA, 2012, 75 mins)

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) for natural gas. Featuring actors Mark Ruffalo and Melissa Leo and musicians Natalie Merchant, Joan Osborne, Citizen Cope and dozens more, joined by pre-eminent scientists and activists, the scripted event invites the governor to join the anti-fracking majority in his home state.
