A Land Out of Time

55 min.
The biggest land grab in American history is occurring in the Rocky Mountain West as the oil and gas industry leases millions of acres of public land, with plans to drill hundreds of thousands of gas wells. The drilling blitz ranges from New Mexico to Montana and threatens some of America’s last, best wild lands. Westerners on the land for generations tell the story and foment a backlash against the current administration’s energy policy. Produced and directed by Mark Harvey (National Outdoor Book Award winner). Written by Mark Harvey and Laurel Garrett, based on a treatment by Timothy Egan (Pulitzer-price winning journalist for the New York Times).
