About the film
GASLAND – a film by Josh Fox
The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. 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. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.

Gasland is an Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning feature length documentary exposes the impacts that fracking activities have had in the United States on human and environmental health, including the possible contamination of groundwater.
