SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – A movie made right here in the ArkLaTex about the Haynesville Shale has officially opened for a week of screenings in Shreveport.
Haynesville: A Nations Hunt for an Energy Future documents the discovery of the massive shale gas play and follows three individuals as they encounter the steep learning curve that came with the huge leasing boom that hit the area two years ago. From a gun-toting land-loving country boy to a single mom and a pastor with a dream, their personal stories intertwine to tell a story full of contrasts.
From rags to riches for one, to a David and Goliath battle over environmental protections with an oil and gas exploration company, the film offers a broad perspective on the wide range of individual impact the play is having on the people who live here.
Directed by Gregory Kallenberg, Haynesville has also takes on the broader perspective of what a natural gas find of this scale could mean to the nation's energy future, exploring how the Haynesville's reserves could provide a cleaner bridge to from coal and oil to renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar.
