Drill Baby Drill

Trivella bambina trivella
by Lech Kowalski 2013 84'

When the residents of a Polish village near the border with the Ukraine, famous for its natural beauty, hear that Chevron Corporation, an American multinational energy corporation, is planning to start hydraulic fracturing, a process oil and gas drilling companies use to fracture rock formations deep in the earth to extract shale oil and natural gas, they are not contrary to the project until they learn about the disastrous consequences the controversial drilling technique has on the environment. Thus begins their battle against company. A story similar in many ways to that of a community in Pennsylvania, called the Saudi Arabia of the United States because of its vast underground oil shale reserves.
