Josh Fox’s GASLAND was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary and won top prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. GASLAND details how the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history is sweeping across the United States thanks to fracking, unlocking a Saudi Arabia of natural gas beneath American soil at a potentially devastating environmental cost.
