ABOUT THE FILM

South African filmmaker Jolynn Minnaar is galvanized into action by fracking threats to the Karoo, her semi-arid beloved homeland. Determined to find out the truth, Minnaar embarks on a troubling and sometimes frightening journey across continents. In corporate offices, on industrial sites, in the homes of those affected and from those who have been silenced she explores the politics and the process of fracking. Compelling, disturbing, informative, this extremely well made film offers an inspiring look at the courage required to dig deep and tell the truth about the murky world of the global shale gas interests.
