Gasland follows director Josh Fox as he travels the United States and uncovers the truth behind hydraulic fracturing or "fracking," the process that is used by natural gas companies to extract gas from the earth. Gasland gives a view into the political corruption caused by the big oil companies in America and brings to light a relatively unknown but nevertheless very important issue of the current energy crisis. Josh Fox received the 2011 Emmy for Best Directing for Nonfiction Programming and Gasland was nominated for the Oscar for Best Documentary.
