Unearthed: Award-Winning Film Screening at UWC

The UWC Environmental Sustainability Studies Programme, and the Departments of Political Studies and Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, invite you to a film screening of the award-winning film Unearthed, providing "a rare glimpse into the murky waters of the fracking industry".

Unearthed is an independent South African feature documentary investigating fracking in the United States - the technology’s place of origin - in order to understand what this new method of gas extraction could mean for the semi-arid Karoo and other countries that are considering its implementation. The film formed part of the official 2014 selection at the prestigious Sheffield International Documentary Festival in the UK. Unearthed was awarded the Green Award and applauded as one with critical, international relevance, and praised for its ability to inspire action across the  world. The film received the Best South African Film award as voted by the audience at the Encounters International Film Festival.
