Synopsis: TEDDY ROOSEVELT AND FRACKING is an experimental documentary essay that explores the magnificence and fragility of the North Dakota landscape, contrasting the stunning vastness and stark loneliness of the relatively untouched wild areas with the terrible beauty of the oil derricks, fracking towers, natural gas burn offs, coal mines, machinery, trucks, energy installations, and man camps--visual evidence of the recent boom and bust economy that echoes the cattle boom and bust of the 1880s. The prescient poetry of Teddy's own words combines with the images of both the untouched wild landscapes and the fracked, and all this is accompanied by a score layered and composed from natural and industrial sounds in a lyrical and passionate plea for conservation that lets the landscape speak for itself.

"The story is in the landscape...an important film." --Don Cato, Artistic Director, Queens World Film Festival
