Gasland is a documentary by Josh Fox about the impact of hydraulic fracturing on the communities in the United States.
Along the way, he exposes its hazardous environmental and health effects, greedy oil companies, and government schemes that help the natural gas drilling process unregulated and unmonitored.
This is an eye-opening film that effectively takes you to the center of the problem. The story unfolds through the experiences of people in affected communities then connects to the oil companies and the government.
As Fox drives from one state to another we get a striking contrast between a beautiful view of the landscape and oil wells and tanks. You can’t help but sympathize with the people who are affected by this issue and get mad at the oil companies and their enablers.
Overall it’s a good inspiring documentary that highlights the impact of hydraulic fracturing and profit-driven greed.
Gasland is an effective documentary that highlights the horrifying apocalyptic environmental damage of fracking.
