Post-screening reception at KIPCOR

A 2014 documentary on citizen opposition to fracking, Groundswell Rising, is the next event in the Kansas Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (KIPCOR) Film Series, and the filmmaker will be present for the screening.

It’s Feb. 21 at 3 p.m. in Krehbiel Auditorium in Bethel College’s Luyken Fine Arts Center. The film is free and open to the public. There will be a freewill offering taken to support the film series and the work of KIPCOR.

The screening of Groundswell Rising at Bethel will be a bigger event than past films in the series, starting with the presence of the filmmaker, Renard Cohen, as part of a panel that will lead the talk-back session after the film.

Joining Cohen on the panel is Joe Spease, chair of the Kansas Sierra Club’s Fracking Committee, with others yet to be determined.

The Kansas Sierra Club and the Peace and Social Justice Center of South Central Kansas are co-sponsoring a reception, including showing clips of the film, Feb. 20 at 3 p.m. at Lorraine Avenue Mennonite Church in Wichita.

There will be another reception in the KIPCOR office, 2515 College Avenue in North Newton, after the showing of Groundswell Rising at Bethel.
