Frackman tells the story of accidental activist Dayne “Frackman” Pratzky and a group of ordinary Queenslanders as they battle against the $70 billion unconventional gas industry.

The observational documentary, directed and produced by Margaret River filmmaker, Richard Todd, follows Pratzky’s five-year battle against the Queensland Gas Company after they demand to sink gas wells on his property.

The David and Goliath battle includes triumph, tragedy, love and conflict as Pratzky and his neighbours face off against the gas company and the unconventional gas industry.

The special screenings will take place across traditional cinemas with many including a question and answer session with Pratzky and Todd.

The film’s trailer gained one million hits on YouTube in the first ten days of its release. It was named best film and best environmental film at the Byron Bay International Film Festival in March.
