Frackman: The Movie tells the story of ordinary Australian Dayne Pratzky and his struggle against international gas companies in Tara, Queensland. The film is screening across Victoria as the issue of unconventional gas extraction heats up.
In the lead up to the Labor Government’s enquiry into the industry, people will see, first hand, the impact gas fields have on rural communities and on the land, air and water they rely on.
Can you imagine any other issue that would bring together the likes of Alan Jones and Bob Brown?
“No Australian voter should miss this film.” – Bob Brown
“If you care about our country, see it” – Alan Jones

Opposition to unconventional gas mining, which includes coal seam gas, tight gas and shale gas, is growing all over the world. Total bans are now in full force in: New York State (USA), New Brunswick (Canada), Wales, Germany and France.
This film has been strongly anticipated by the Victorian community, where there is widespread opposition to the unconventional gas mining industry. In Western Victoria over 1 million hectares is covered by approved exploration licences for coal and unconventional gas and in Gippsland, over 350,000 hectares. Communities from Hamilton in the west to Bairnsdale in the state’s east are sending a clear message that unconventional gas mining is not welcome in Victoria.
