The risks of gas drilling through fracking technology

Update 2 February 2011: the film is a Oscar documentary nominee.
In the U.S. the Halliburton-developed drilling technology of fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, has unlocked a Saudia Arabia of natural gas just below the ground. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination.
The film and its transmedia franchises are campaigning for the repeal of the exemption of hydraulic fracturing from the Safe Drinking Water Act.


Produced by Molly Gandour and Trish Adlesic
Directed by Josh Fox
