The film follows grandmothers who set up a campaign group (Lancashire Nanas) and teamed up with young activists (Reclaim the Power) to shut down the Fracking sites of Cuadrilla near Blackpool (Lancashire) and Balcombe (West Sussex) by occupying trucks and blocking gates. It explores how social media is being used by both Fracking companies and activists as a tool. We hear from energy experts, journalists, and key politicians amongst the voices of local residents and councillors.

After the film there will be a Q&A; session with some of the people involved in the protests as well as local campaigners from groups offering positive, alternative energy solutions. The groups on the panel discussion include Divest Hackney, Hackney Energy, Reclaim the Power, Weald Action Group, Frack off London, and Leith Hill Protection Camp

A bar will be open from 7.00 to 11pm and light snacks are available in partnership with Hackney Green Drinks. The film starts at 7.30pm. Book a seat here
