"Rooted Lands / Tierras Arraigadas" [indep Dec 2012]
Rooted Lands / Tierras Arraigadas anti-fracking docufilm  The citizens of rural northeast New Mexico became alarmed when the oil & gas companies began buying up mineral leases in Mora and San Miguel Counties, expecting no opposition from the sparsely-settled area. But the citizens rose up to defend the richness of their culture, their heritage, their landscape, and their place. The film also explores how people living in the Four Corners area of northwest New Mexico have been impacted by 'full field development' by the fracking industry.
Co-produced, written & directed by Renea Roberts; narrated by Fredrick Lopez
