A divisive hot topic, fracking has recently been the focus of narrative and documentary films, including Gasland and Promised Land. Though it will doubtlessly raise awareness and generate discussion, Fractured Land is a more personal tale and a moving film that explores the challenges faced by Caleb, a young indigenous aspiring lawyer. There are no laws against fracking in British Columbia. The oil industries are devouring the land, despite treaties existing to enforce governmental consultation with native communities prior to any development. Caleb is unable to let this fall on deaf ears, and comes to realise his duty lies with the protection of his home. That the stunning Canadian landscape has a cinematic quality is needless to say. Outstanding cinematography has resulted in a documentary as visually striking as it is emotionally affective. Fractured Land is both a wake up call and a powerful tribute to an inspiring young man’s journey. The film benefits from a balanced and restrained exploration of the political and environmental issues at hand; critical and educational, without being aggressively militant in its approach.
