Fracking Documentary Breaking Free at 30th Annual Boston Film Festival

World Premiere Screening 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28, at the Revere Hotel

NEW YORK--()--A premiere of Breaking Free: The Shale Rock Revolution, a new documentary about the American energy renaissance directed by independent filmmaker Robin Bossert, will be featured in the closing day showcase “Call to Action on the Environment” at the 30th Annual Boston Film Festival at 2 p.m. September 28 at the Revere Hotel. The director will be on hand to answer audience questions after the film viewing.

“I just couldn’t stand seeing only part of the story – the worst-case scenario part – being told over and over again.”

“Breaking Free seeks to bridge the information gap between public perception and an industry that fuels our daily lives, our national economy, and our future,” said filmmaker Bossert, who brings more than 30 years of experience to the documentary. “In making this documentary, we hope to lower the temperature on the conversation about fracking so we can make the right decisions for the future of our country.”

Divided into six sections addressing “community focus,” “drilling process,” “history of drilling,” “environmental impact,” “seismicity,” and “economic impact,” the documentary introduces the subject of fracking with stories from people living in affected areas, discussion of the “good and bad” aspects of the practice, and informative research and background to help viewers better understand what fracking is, what it has brought to America, and what it can do to help the U.S. free itself of its dependence on oil and gas from hostile foreign nations.

“There’s been so much myth and misinformation about fracking that has clouded the mainstream media, and the industry has been so late in joining the conversation,” noted producer Chris Faulkner, CEO of Breitling Energy Corporation (OTC:BECC). “I just couldn’t stand seeing only part of the story – the worst-case scenario part – being told over and over again.”

Featuring 32 films this year, the 30th Annual Boston Film Festival offers audiences first-hand access to the filmmakers and filmmaking process during the Q&A sessions with the director and talent following every screening.
