Gasland Part 2
In the follow-up to the Oscar-nominated GASLAND, Josh Fox continues his fight against the American oil industry and its increasing reliance on the controversial extraction method known as fracking. The story started when Fox received a letter with an offer to drill for gas on his family's land in Pennsylvania. Since then, he has documented both the environmental damage caused by fracking and the indecent methods used by the oil industry to prevent public debate on the issue. What chance do ordinary Americans have of fighting fracking when even the US government is afraid of the oil industry?
JOSH FOX is the founder of the International WOW Company and works as director, producer and screenwriter. His documentary GASLAND (2010) was awarded the Special Jury Prize for Documentary at the Sundance film festival, and was also nominated for the Academy Award for best documentary.
