Don't Frack With Denton is a feature-length documentary about civil disobedience and the fight against fracking in Texas.
Hundreds of gas wells tower over Denton, Texas extracting natural gas using a dangerous and controversial drilling technique called hydraulic fracturing, also known as "fracking". Childhood asthma rates are on the rise as the county's air quality declines, but the people of Denton are fighting back. Against overwhelming odds, the citizens of Denton vote to become the first city in Texas to ban fracking.
But after a shady coalition of corporate lobbyists and industry insiders manage to throw out their vote behind closed doors, the people of Denton must resort to acts of civil disobedience to physically stop the fracking industry from returning to their town. It's a David and Goliath story about community and resistance from deep in the heart of America's gas land.
The film premiered at the 30th Annual Dallas Video Fest in 2017.
