New Film Trailer -- 'This Land' -- Endangered by Pipelines


As the premiere of This Land is only a little over two weeks away, I wanted to send along a trailer to the film:
The film is obviously quite big, but this is a small little tease of the full film. -- Lisa DeVille, Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara, North Dakota

This land is our only home, yet due to our addiction to fossil fuels, a finite, non-renewable source of energy to sustain our lifestyles, we are putting our future at risk. This Land takes us from the Texas and Mexico border, to the Dakotas, and then Northern Canada. As we profile methods of extracting fossil fuels and transporting them, we will meet native and local communities fighting against gas and oil pipelines and see what is at stake if we continue on our current path or decide to make a stand for our land, this land, our only home.
