Brolga Theatre to screen fracking documentary with Q and A

FARMER and filmmaker David Smith has been on a global journey to find out the truth about fracking.

The Aussie farmer, tired of political spin, has filmed his fact-finding mission into the impact of fracking on communities.

Hydraulic fracturing or fracking is a method of extracting fossil fuels - primarily natural gas but also oil - from deep underground.

His inspiring journey takes him from the southern point of country South Australia to Northern Australia and across the world to the USA.

Hear the stories of everyday people speaking out to give an insight into this industry as well as the science from world experts.

"If our farmers face contamination from this industry as has happened around the world, it is our soil, air and ground water that effectively ends up on tables in cities around the world in the form of dairy products, wine, meat, fruit and veges, so this is an issue that is of concern to everyone, in both country and city," David said.

"We all want fresh air, clean water and food that is safe for our family.

"Come see this film and find out why this has the potential to impact us all."

David stepped out of his comfort zone into an environmental war zone in Queensland and across the US where lives have been destroyed and land owners are desperate to turn back time.

Bookings for tickets need to be made before May 28.

Tickets only available at fan-force.com/screening.

Pipe Dreams Fractured Lives special Q&A screening will be held at the Brolga Theatre, 5 Walker St, Maryborough on Monday, June 4.

There will be two screenings - a matinee at 2pm and at 6.30pm.

David said he was told the only good thing being done by the well is it is making a few people wealthy at the expense of everybody else and the planet.
