Storyline

Fractured Land is a coming of age story about a young Aboriginal leader and lawyer, Caleb Behn. His territory is at the epicenter of some of the largest fracking operations on earth. The film follows Caleb as he tries to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him, blending modern tools of law with ancient wisdom. As 350.org founder, Bill McKibben, puts it, 'Anyone who can throw a hatchet and sue you is a force to be reckoned with.' But first, Caleb must find peace within himself, and reconcile the fractures within his own heart. Fractured Land provides a powerful Indigenous point of view, about the true complexities of hydrocarbon development, the significance of trust, and the power of vulnerability.

Despite articulate and genuine message of lead Caleb Behn, spoiled by bogus facts
22 October 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

Things were going great with this documentary until a number of persons with very bad records on telling falsehoods were marched in. What for example was the point in bringing in Josh Fox, director of the polemic "Gaslands," which has been cited for very serious falsehoods, even on outlets such as NPR? People like Fox do much more harm than good once their mendacity is understood. Fox's claim on flames from water taps in rural Pennsylvania was shown to exist 200 years before anyone did any fracking in rural Pennsylvania. why were there many incidents of flames coming from water taps for generations before any fracking -- or even oil drilling -- was done in NY, Colorado, Pennsylvania etc? In fact the first reports of water taps flaming was in 1795! There are plenty of people concerned about the environment. it is harmful to the message to throw in liars, 911 truthers and other nuts ruining what would otherwise be an very effective film
