This rough-and-ready but revealing doc exposes the disastrous environmental impact of ‘fracking’ (hydraulic fracturing), a form of natural gas drilling that consumes vast quantities of water mixed with toxic chemicals.
Banjo-toting director Josh Fox visits US communities affected by this practice: he discovers flammable drinking-water supplies, mysterious health problems and worrying levels of air pollution.
The lesson is a familiar one but Fox conveys it vividly, contrasting natural beauty with the despoliation wrought by industrial plunder.
