Haynesville Movie Trailer: Largest Natural Gas Field in the U.S.
Static Preview

Haynesville takes place in the Louisiana backwoods and follows the momentous discovery of the largest natural gas field in the United States. As the Haynesville boom erupts, three lives are caught in the middle of the find: A single mom defends her communitys environmental protections, an African American preacher attempts to use the riches to build a school, and a self-described country boy finds himself conflicted as he weighs losing his land against becoming an overnight millionaire. From a broader perspective, Haynesville explores what a natural gas find of this scale could mean to the United States energy picture as environmentalists, academics and pundits hash out the concept of a clean energy future and discuss how the Haynesvilles reserves could provide an energy answer.
