Pipe Dreams Fractured Lives
has won an international film festival award and screened in Parliament House in Perth, WA.
“This is a very special film – unique in its history and conceptualisation and outstanding in its production. The mix between science-based information and community stories and experiences makes it both educational and deeply informative. The US story is vital to understanding the environmental and health risks associated with living close to gas fields. I encourage everyone who is concerned about food security, the wellbeing of our food producers and the integrity of our environment to make sure you don’t miss this film.” – Professor, Faculty of Health, QUT
“This very well made film delivers a powerful message about the environmental and social degradation resulting from unconventional gas mining. It documents vividly and poignantly how it impacts our communities and particularly how farmers are tragically affected by this mining in Australia and the USA. The film interviews scientists in the USA and Australia who outline how the fugitive emissions and burning of methane for energy, contribute to climate change and the how aquifers are contaminated making them unsafe to use and drink the water. The precautionary principle has not been applied when Governments approve this mining and the ensuing environmental damage is often irreparable. It is a must see film.” – Associate Professor, University of Queensland
