Watch the Theatrical Trailer


Haynesville follows the momentous discovery of the largest natural gas field in the United States... and maybe the world. The film examines the historic find - a formation called the Haynesville Shale - from the personal level as well as from the higher perspective of the current energy picture and the pending energy future.

As the Haynesville boom erupts, the film focuses on three lives caught in the middle of the find, a commentary on how modern citizens react to an energy boom in the rural Louisiana backwoods. Haynesville also explores the current energy picture in the United States. In a never-before-seen on-screen discussion, environmentalists, academics, entrepreneurs, and pundits ponder how natural gas could possibly help provide an energy answer.

We are currently booking screenings for small and large groups around the country. Our goal is for 1,000,000 people to see this film. We believe that a clean energy future will be created by people like you who believe in the idea of finding environmentally safe ways to extract natural gas and using that energy source to transition to a renewable-based future. We believe in weighing all the costs of energy before using it (human, environmental and otherwise). We believe that you will create the path to a clean energy future.

There are a number of ways to host a screening of Haynesville. You can create a screening event with your group, company, or educational institution with the filmmakers in attendance. Or you can screen the film yourself with a special screening license.
