One documentary per week – # 14 – “Gasland”

by kaiconfusion

Gasland ” (English/ Deutsch) – 2010 – 106min

This is number fourteen of the ” One documentary per week series”.
For some time now every Sunday I will suggest one documentary for us to watch sometime during the course of the week. Each of the films I choose, is one that I regard as must see and must know abouts. Where possible they will be in English and German or at least also with German subtitles!
In our daily lives, the concerns of the world can be easily forgotten since they seem so far away. Taking an hour a week to learn something new or to be inspired or to be touched, is a great investment of our precious life time!
Even if sad information can be hard to take, often the solutions are just around the bend and start in our own backyards and with our day to day life choices! “Think global – act local” is more true and important than ever!
All these wonderful documentaries can help us to understand the big picture while showing us what you and I can do about it!
As we are watching these films, we can have discussions about the documentaries that we have watched or share links to interesting projects that deal with those issues and that are part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
I hope you will enjoy this idea and participate, share and embrace it! Enjoy watching!

Gasland – Fracking vergiftet die Umwelt(Deutsche Version)

The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us. But is fracking safe?

When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination.

A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND.
