'Fracking' is a slang word for the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks and shale to force open existing fissures to extract oil or gas.
For 6 years people all across the UK have been putting their bodies in the way of trucks to slow down the drilling process.
Power Trip will take you into the heart of the resistance to this industry in England.
Release Date for the film is November 2017
