Washington, D.C. Premiere Energy companies pursue increasingly difficult methods of fossil fuel extraction at increasing costs to the people and the environment. This documentary examines four states—North Dakota, Montana, Pennsylvania and Colorado– that are presently in different stages of hydro-fracking development. The results are several powerful stories of people at odds with the natural gas extraction occurring around them. Directed and produced by Deia Schlosberg.
Introduced by Matt Lee-Ashley, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress. Panel discussion moderated by Erika Bolstad, journalist, McClatchy Newspapers with Maite Arce, CEO, Hispanic Access Foundation, Amy Mall, Senior Policy Analyst, Natural Resources Defense Council, and Kate Wofford, Executive Director, Shenandoah Valley Network.
