WINSTON-SALEM--A pair of filmmakers is traveling the Tar Heel state, showing a movie they made about the impact of hydro-fracking.
Todd Tinkham and Molly Matlock made the film "A Message from the Marcellus: What N.C. needs to know about Fracking."
They made the movie after visiting states that have already dealt with the gas drilling method.
On Saturday, an environmental group hosted them at the Forsyth County Central Library.
They're hoping the film will prevent fracking in North Carolina, once people see the effects it's had on other communities.
"We're going to have some of these companies come in, basically, they'll rape the land and then they'll leave. And meanwhile, they've gotten the mineral rights from somebody who owns the land that won't be able to sell the property," said concerned citizen Gayle Tuch.
The screening was part of Saturday's "Global Frackdown," where activists encouraged communities around the world to demonstrate their opposition to fracking.
