Dear Governor Cuomo

On a rainy night in May of 2012, a coalition of musicians, scientists and activists gathered in Albany, New York, on the governor’s front doorstep—calling for a ban on hydraulic-fracturing. With the news that Governor Andrew Cuomo might lift the moratorium on fracking in the state, an event was assembled in less than a month. Two rehearsals in 24 hours and it was showtime. Starring Mark Ruffalo, Natalie Merchant, Melissa Leo, Joan Osborne, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Dan Zanes, the film that resulted from that night—a unique blend of “The Last Waltz” and “An Inconvenient Truth”—was written and directed by Jon Bowermaster, and filmed under the direction of Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney.
