The Fracturing of Public Opinion: Bulgaria's Fracking Controversy


This documentary film explores the scientific, socio-political and economic dynamics underlying the ongoing discussion in Bulgaria of the feasibility, or lack thereof, of unconventional shale gas development (commonly known as "fracking"). Of particular interest and concern is the Cold War framework which is being imposed upon this discussion, and the manner in which political considerations would appear to be outpacing hard science. Of equal concern is the profound lack of open communication and dialogue among citizenry, government and industry, coupled with the apparent impunity of vested interests. While our film focuses on three communities in Bulgaria, in light of the ongoing fracking debate worldwide, there are clearly lessons to be drawn for us all.

On May 27th, 2013 "The Fracturing of Public Opinion" was screened at the Millenium Film Festival in Brussels.

    It is argued that journalist film critics should only be known as film reviewers, and true film critics are those who take a more academic approach to films.

Great project, dear Catherine! And wonderful pictures from Bulgaria, which is indeed a pristine paradise that deserves to stay like this, so as Romania, which is now in a huge danger of being fracktured on 70% of its territory.
