Dear President Obama, The Clean Energy Revolution is Now, narrated by 3-time Academy Award nominated actor Mark Ruffalo, calls on President Obama to ban fracking and join the “anti-drilling” majority growing across the US. Oceans 8 Films is excited to announce the film’s premiere in Washington D.C. on March 18, 2016 as part of the Environmental Film Festival, at the National Geographic headquarters, followed by a 30-day screening tour in March and April.
Executive produced and narrated by actor/activist Mark Ruffalo, and produced by filmmaker and explorer Jon Bowermaster, Dear President Obama takes a cross-country look at drilling. Highlighting its variety of contaminations, the stories of its victims, and the false promise of an economic boom, the film focuses on clean energy solutions that would allow us to proceed towards a future that does not rely on yet another dirty fossil fuel extraction process. Interviews with scientists, economists, health professionals, geologists, and whistleblowers provide the core narrative of the film. Its producers hope to convince the current President and those that will follow to join the “anti-drilling” majority growing across the US, and call for fossil fuels to be kept in the ground.
