Virtual Anti-Fracking Filmfest, 2014
When Pennsylvania’s own anti-fracking superstar, Elizabeth Arnold, went on tour in Britain to warn people about the problems faced here and in other shale gas drilling states, she gave this highly informative 20-minute interview.
After providing a concise overview of the problems common to shale gas development, and personally defending the people of Gasland, she recommends a few lesser known films, too.
“Triple Divide is the powerful, acclaimed product of an 18-month investigation by Public Herald into the negative impacts from fracking in Pennsylvania since 2008, and how those impacts are handled by regulators and industry. The film is co-narrated by actor, activist and Water Defense co-founder, Mark Ruffalo.”
Drill, Baby, Drill is a film by Lech Kowalski: “One day the people who live in a small village located in far eastern Poland near the Ukranian border, an ecologically pristine agricultural area known as the lungs of Poland, discover that Chevron, the world’s forth largest energy corporation plans to build a shale gas well in their village.”
Fractured Land recounts the riveting struggle a young, First Nations man in his fight for environmental human rights for all people. The film is directed and produced by Fiona Rayher and Damien Gillis: “A young First Nations law student and emerging leader from northeast BC, epicenter of some of the worlds largest fracking operations, tries to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him – blending modern tools of the law with ancient wisdom.”
