“If you care about our country, see it!â€Â -Â Alan Jones
“No Australian voter should miss this film”Â –Â Bob Brown
This is a film about the ordinary people caught up in a modern day multinational â€œgas rushâ€ to secure and exploit coal seam gas. Accidental activistÂ Dayne â€˜Frackmanâ€™ Pratzky was building a simple home on his property, until the Gas company arrived, demanding to install wells on his property. So began his transformation from knockabout pig-shooter to passionate activist, and a David and Goliath battle against a $200 billion industry. Along the way he finds love, tragedy and triumph.
This special DocWeek preview session includes a post screening meet the filmmakers event with directorÂ Richard ToddÂ and producerÂ Trish Lake.
See you there!
