FRACKMAN

2015 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Director Richard Todd

US PREMIERE When Aussie everyman Dayne Pratzky left Sydney to build a home in rural Tara, he never expected he’d find himself in a battle over one of today’s most contentious issues: fracking. After the gas companies arrive to exploit the coal seam gas trapped beneath his land, Dayne learns he has no legal recourse to stop their activity. Galvanized to take a stand, the accidental activist unites an unlikely alliance of farmers and radicals to save their community, unexpectedly becoming part of a global network in the process.

This screening is co-presented with The Nation.
