    • Synopsis
    • A smouldering resentment has turned conservative country people to civil disobedience. Politicians are caught off guard, not knowing who to support. With a tenfold increase in Coal Seam Gas (CSG) wells over the past three years and massive new developments underway, ‘The Gas Rush’ is on. Into this maelstrom of conflict and passions ventures the Frackman and his filmmaker mate. They take a quixotic journey through the landscape and lives being torn apart by our desperate search for energy.
