GasLand

Oscar nominated and Sundance winning documentary exposing the environmental impact of 'fracking' (hydraulic fracturing), a form of natural gas drilling.

"It is happening all across America-rural landowners wake up one day to find a lucrative offer from an energy company wanting to lease their property. Reason? The company hopes to tap into a reservoir dubbed the "Saudi Arabia of natural gas." Halliburton developed a way to get the gas out of the ground-a hydraulic drilling process called "fracking"- and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower." (Sundance Film Festival 2010)

The lesson is a familiar one but Fox conveys it vividly, contrasting natural beauty with the despoliation wrought by industrial plunder.

Josh Fox puts a fresh spin on a well-drilled - if continually relevant - story.
