Movement Generation and The Other 98% produced What the Frack in partnership with the Center on Race, Poverty, & the Environment. The project features comedian Kristina Wong, singer Hector Flores from Las Cafeteras, and MG’s own Josh Healey alongside community leaders Juan Flores, Lupe Martinez, and Anabel Marquez who are on the frontlines of the fracking crisis in California’s Central Valley.
Eight videos in all, What the Frack tackles the biggest concerns and controversies about fracking in California. The series highlights how fracking is exacerbating California’s devastating drought, contaminating our food, aggravating racism against Latino communities, putting us at a greater risk of earthquakes…and even exposing Gov. Brown’s oily connection to Dick Cheney.
Co-produced by our own Josh Healey and directed by Yvan Iturriaga, What the Frack is the newest project in MG’s Green Collar Comedy series. Combining subversive humor and grassroots activism, these videos break through the dominant narratives on issues of race, class, and ecology. Which is exactly what the anti-fracking movement in Central Valley is doing.
