Frackman

  • Catch Dayne on The Project TONIGHT (27/2/15), Channel 10 @ 6:30PM.

    Dayne Pratzky was chasing the great Australian dream when he upped sticks from the city and moved to Tara in south east Queensland. He bought a bush block to build a house and make a home.

    One day a gas company man drove down Dayne’s driveway, “He told me we’re gunna sink a well down the back of your place and if you don’t like it, there’s nothing you can do about it,” Dayne explains.

    Dayne shares his story in a gripping new film that has been five years in the making: Frackman. It’s the real life story of what happened when coal seam gas came to Australia. In Frackman we share Dayne’s trials and triumphs, as he and his neighbours work together to fight back against coal seam gas.

    The Frackman premiere roadshow will be touring NSW throughout March. It’s the must-see cinema event of the year and the film that Bob Brown says no Australian should miss.

    The Frackman trailer has been viewed nearly 1 million times, Click here to watch it.
