From the Filmaker:
Offical “Fracking the Fork” documentary filmed this 2012 spring semester. Edited before the decision to defer all parcels. However, issue is still critical to address in the area to prevent future nominations by oil/gas companies to lease the land.
The film was made in a class called “Creating New Media for the Old & New West with professor Don Grusin at the University of Colorado. It was partially sponsored by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to get youth involved with the BLM besides the typical recreational purposes.
Also sponsored by the Center for American West. We learned the history of the west and BLM in the class then worked on this film throughout the semester.
