In the original 2010 film Gasland, director Josh Fox profiled hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the process of injecting a pressurised mixture of water, sand and chemicals down a drilled well, causing layers of rock deep in the earth to crack and release natural gas. The film inspired a national dialogue over the multi-layered environmental dangers potentially at risk. With Gasland Part II, Fox examines the long-term impact of the controversial process, including claims of poisonous water, earthquakes and neurological damage, placing his focus on the people across the globe who say their lives have been irreparably changed.
