2012DOCUMENTARY / CONCERT FILMFOR OCEANS 8 FILMS EDITOR With the news in the spring of 2012 that Governor Andrew Cuomo might lift the four-year moratorium against hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in New York State any day, a concert/protest was organized on his doorstep in the state capitol of Albany. 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, “starring” Mark Ruffalo, Melissa Leo, Joan Osborne, Citizen Cope, Medeski Martin and Wood and many more – is a cross between “The Last Waltz” and “An Inconvenient Truth,” equal parts message and music.
