The Bakken oil boom in North Dakota has brought much-needed jobs and economic development to the region. But the fast pace of the drilling has caused many problems, including industrial-scale impacts on Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the land surrounding it. This film explores how one of America’s national parks is being affected by the pollution, traffic, and noise associated with oil and gas drilling. Produced by Andrew Satter and Jessica Goad.
