"The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across
the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of
"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 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."
