The film is 1 hour and 44 minutes long and is a documentary made recently in the USA where Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) as a way of extracting natural gas has been going on for a while despite strong evidence of pollution of groundwater and air and attendant health problems. This is the technology that is being put forward as the way to access gas deposits in the Karoo – much to the anger of farmers and environmentalists.
