Fracking – this topic seems to be a never ending story since the few past years. Mainstream media feed us with lots of news connected to hydraulic fracturing. With that talk there is little understanding of the process and even less attention paid to reality of people whose lives are directly affected by natural gas exploration. That creates field for many pros and cons arguments. One of big NO for fracking in 2010 was Gasland, American documentary written and directed by Josh Fox. It has created an antifracking movement in the US and also in Europe.

FrackNation, a documentary created by Irish-Polish trio and funded through Kickstarter is the answer for every accusations and manipulation of facts shown in Gasland.

Goal of FrackNation directors was to make an honest research on fracking in full context: economic, personal, scientific, political and historical.  In FrackNation an investigative journalist Phelim McAleer travels across the USA and Europe to uncover the science suppressed by environmental activists and ignored by much of the media. He talks with scientists and ordinary Americans who live in fracking areas and who tell him the truth behind the exaggerations and misrepresentations of anti-fracking activists.

What is most important FrackNation explicitly rejected and rejects funding from oil and gas companies or senior executives of such companies. This is completely independent movie.

Together with the Kosciuszko Institute and Claeys & Casteels Pubilshing, YoungPetro is the co-organizer of two big events:

BRUSSELS, 10.02.2014 – Premiere of FrackNation in the European Parliament

WARSAW, 13.02.2014 – Premiere of FrackNation in Kino Muranów
