Gasland is spreading public awareness about gas drilling and the risks it
poses on human and environmental health. Nationwide response to the film has been
overwhelmingly positive. The Oil and Gas Industry's response: not so enthusiastic.
When 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.
Gasland is released in the UK on January 21.
