CAVU presents<br> UNEARTHED: The Real Story of Oil and Gas in New Mexico
Please contact our box office at (505) 988-1234 for availability information.

New Mexico is facing an economic crisis to balance its budget and pay for education. Oil and gas production drives the state’s revenues while other industries struggle to stay afloat. But energy production from an antiquated infrastructure is contributing to massive amounts of uncontrolled leaking methane and carcinogenic gases. Unregulated methane waste represents revenue losses not only for oil and gas companies and New Mexico’s tax base, it is also endangering the health of nearby communities and damaging our environment and cultural resources.

CAVU is producing an initiative that will “unearth” the complicated story of oil and gas extraction in New Mexico. We are taking an in-depth look at the historical, cultural and economic circumstances that led New Mexico to be handcuffed to an industry that is currently failing the state on multiple levels, but one that also offers the possibility of significant solutions. This educational initiative is designed to bridge the gap between ideological extremes, linking climate, economy, and health so that they are more easily understood as nonpartisan issues – empowering viewers to think critically when solving environmental issues in their own communities. We believe all New Mexicans have a stake in this issue. Together, we can help the state move towards policy, regulations and elected officials that value and protect New Mexico’s health, environment and cultural history while also working for the floundering economy.

Q&A Session will follow the film.
