“★★★★ – Groundswell is a triumphant, transparent and aesthetically magnificent account of the loving relationship between people and their land” – The Upcoming
Activist and filmmaker Johnny Gogan provides a uniquely personal insight into how the people of Leitrim and Fermanagh fought back against a gas company employing the controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking.
Filmed over ten years and told through the experiences of grassroots activists, Groundswell follows the battle between a local community and a company promising billions of Euros of tax revenue to the Irish Government over the fracking of the natural landscape in Northwest Ireland.
