The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton developed drilling technology called fracking or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a Saudia Arabia of natural gas just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country road trip to find the answer to this question. A nearby Pennsylvania town which was recently drilled 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.
Gasland won the Special Jury Award at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
