Australia is in the midst of an unprecedented mining boom. With a ten-fold increase in Coal Seam Gas (CSG) wells over the past three years and massive new developments underway – ‘The Gas Rush’ is on.
Frackman unfolds as a journey through this factious physical and political landscape, through the eyes of landowner and reluctant activist Dayne ‘The Frackman’ Pratzky,
charting the efforts of concerned Australians across the
city / country divide attempting to turn the tide against
some of the most powerful corporations on the planet.
