Summary
In September 2006, theatre director and part-time banjo player Josh Fox received an unexpected letter: a natural gas company offering him one hundred dollars for permission to explore his familys upstate New York property, in the lush Delaware River Basin area. Rather than simply signing on the dotted line, Joshs curiosity saw him asking questions. After some investigation, he discovered that the method for extracting the valuable resource from the "Saudi Arabia" of reserves, hydraulic fracturing, is exempt from several important pieces of federal legislation, including the clean water act. As Josh sets out on a journey across Americas heartland, his personal concerns quickly uncover global ones: the multi-million dollar business of fracking has contaminated the water supply, the corporate giants are in cover-up mode, and the PR-spun government has not only turned a blind eye, but has regulated itself out of the picture Rough-hewn yet poetic, the film is a desperate plea for scrutiny of a powerful industry that has now turned its eyes on a new, massive and (for now) largely unexplored territory: Australia.--Kanopy
