Editorial Reviews

Little did director Josh Fox know that he'd find himself trailing the history and future of natural gas mining for this documentary, Gasland, or so he claims in this moving and evocative political exposé. Thankfully unpretentious and lacking in the didacticism that plagues many political documentaries, Gasland is edifying in the most entertaining and palatable way. Fox's open-ended questions presented during his narration are answered by interviewees found as he travels cross-country to source out water pollution happening as a result of hydraulic fracturing. The tension begins when Fox researches a letter he receives in the mail at his rural Pennsylvania farmhouse, inviting him to sell his land for $100,000 and permission to mine natural gas. He comes to discover how the Delaware River watershed's imminently endangered status will threaten New York City's main water source, and towards the end of the film focuses on New York City, as respected politicians like John Gennaro and Congressman Maurice Hinchey speak on behalf of this issue. But before filming congressional hearings, Fox charts his personal dilemma and how it quickly spirals outward, as first his neighbors tell him horror stories about water contamination due to this process. And as he tours Colorado, Wyoming, and Texas, where hydraulic fracturing has already contaminated myriad underground wells, Fox actually films many families' water faucets catching fire as people hold a match to their running tap water. Fox's continuing investigation ties this unchecked chemical process to Dick Cheney's Halliburton activity and bills covertly passed during the Bush administration. Gasland does not have a conspiratorial feel; it takes an honest, even-keeled investigative approach and relies on information relayed to Fox from renowned activists like Dr. Theo Colborn and Environmental Protection Agency staffer Weston Wilson. This documentary sheds light on what has been a practice that many American citizens have assumed mysterious and possibly benign. It is easy to understand why Gasland has garnered so many film festival awards, since it presents vital information that will necessitate action once it reaches enough of the population. This is grassroots documentary filmmaking at its finest. --Trinie Dalton

Product Description

In 2009, filmmaker Josh Fox learned his home in the Delaware River Basin was on top of the Marcellus Shale, a rock formation containing natural gas that stretches across New York, Pennsylvania and huge stretches of the Northeast. He was offered $100,000 to lease his land for a new method of drilling developed by Halliburton and soon discovered this was only a part of a 34-state drilling campaign, the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history. Part mystery, part travelogue, and part banjo showdown, Gasland documents Josh's cross-country odyssey to find out if the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing - or fracking - is actually safe. As he interviews people who live on or around current fracking sites, Josh learns of things gone horribly wrong, from illness to hair loss to flammable water, and his inquiries lead him ever deeper into a web of secrets, lies, conspiracy, and contamination - a web that potentially stretches to threaten the New York Watershed. Unearthing a shocking story about a practice that is understudied and inadequately regulated, Gasland races to find answer about fracking before it's far too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Have We Done? November 12, 2010
Format:DVD
When you watch Josh Fox's brilliant GASLAND, it's as if you're watching a nightmare scenario of what would happen if our lands were taken over by evil aliens, intent on sucking the earth dry, regardless of the consequences to the planet--and to us. This is no sci-fi thriller that could never happen in real life, however. Shockingly, it IS really happening and it's worse than you can imagine.

Very fortunately, for all of us, Josh Fox, brave soul that he is, ventured out into the heart of America and into the small towns of this country to actually speak to regular, law abiding, tax paying citizens who are now paying the ultimate price for "clean" gas drilling with permanent health effects, including brain damage, chronic respiratory conditions and many other serious conditions, too numerous to mention. Their land is worthless, their water undrinkable. The now famous scene where the tap water actually bursts into flame is just the tip of the iceburg. The epidemic of hydrofracking now taking place in America is worse than any disease we've ever encountered. It destroys our water, our air, our animals, our vegetation (including farm crops), our livestock, our health and our lives. This is Three Mile Island, Love Canal and Chernobyl--times fifty.

GASLAND should be shown in every elementary, high school and college classroom. At least that way, when our children grow into adults, they will know why there is no such thing anymore as fresh water in America. And they will know who was responsible.

1.0 out of 5 stars This guy is an attention whore March 21, 2014
By Beta
Format:DVD
This film is so full of lies and half truths that it's scary that people are taking it at face value. Do your own research before jumping on Josh Fox's bandwagon. The biggest lie and theatrical show was lighting tap water on fire. Interviews from residents in Dimock, PA show that the water has had flammable methane in it from as far back as the 70's, long before fracking was around. The EPA did test after test after test of well water and found NO contamination from fracking.
Another lie was from Fox's co-hort Alyssa Rich who lied about having a PhD in Air Pollution Control Design and later under oath said she "misspoke". She had teamed up with a citizen to sue the gas company for millions, even making a video lighting water from his garden hose on fire. After an investigation was launched they found the video was a hoax and they admitted to pumping gas through the hose to make it catch fire.
Another lie... A spike in breast cancer in Texas's shale area. This is news to the several cancer experts including Susan G Coleman for the cure. There was no evidence about a spike.
This fear-mongering is unethical.
Do your own research before letting yourself get caught up in the fear-based reporting of Gasland.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure fiction March 3, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This movie isn't even worth one star, unless you look at it as a work of pure science fiction. Do yourself a favour and watch the documentary Frack Nation which exposes all the fraudulent claims made in Gasland. Unfortunately, far too many people can't be bothered to look past their one source of information for all their 'facts'. Gasland's creator has become rich, as have most environmental and global warming alarmists like Al Gore and David Suzuki. A very nice little business these people propagate - instilling fear in a large portion of the population, people all too willing to join the cult, desperately wanting to believe that man is the evil perpetrator destroying our world, and profiting handsomely from that.
Wake up people and dig a little deeper to find out the rest of the story. The information isn't hard to find if you look for it.

This movie is both entertaining and poignant. The imagery is beautiful and haunting. After two years of personal research, travels and meetings with folks from multiple states, I am convinced this is the most important environmental topic of the decade. Gasland grabs your attention with testimonies from real people and explains the technical details in a way that everyone can understand.. In Gasland II, Josh Fox takes it a step further by exposing the national and political impacts. This movie is bulletproof and any critics of this movie who cite Frack Nation subscribe to bad logic. Their logic is similar to the following: "I got lung cancer and don't smoke, therefore smoking doesn't cause lung cancer". Claims that scenes in this movie are fake are unfounded. Methane does migrate and yes, fracking waste disposal does cause earthquakes. These are only a few of the impacts of fracking. Watch Gasland for your self and your children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Water is the life blood of our planet July 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
After viewing Gasland I was angry at how corrupt our government has become. There is a water shortage for farmers in drought areas and to see MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of gallons of water being trucked in and used for hydrofracking when instead they could be HELPING farmers is astounding. I know there are some who say natural gas is worth drilling. But with 50% of all drilled wells failing how safe is it when the aquifers systems are compromised. There is NO WHERE ELSE TO GET WATER BUT HERE. It is the life blood of our planet and it is being POISONED. How (if you are Christian) do you explain to GOD in your hour of JUDGEMENT what you did to PROTECT what GOD himself has created? When he asks, "What did you do to protect MY INVESTMENT?" How can you look him in the face with a clean conscious and say you did when you sat on the sidelines and watched as greed tore apart HIS planet. This is our HOME and the only one of it's kind in the GALAXY. Think about that for a second and then ask yourself CAN AND SHOULDN'T WE BE DOING BETTER.
