Frac Sand Mining Film “The Price of Sand”

Jim Tittle, a film maker, started working on his documentary "The Price of Sand", two years ago after learning that an oil company purchased land close to his mother's home in Hay Creek Township, south of Red Wing, Minnesota. Jim's film was previewed at the Sheldon Theater in Red Wing last Friday night. Red Wing is the epicenter of an ongoing discussion over regulating the mining of sand for fracking in the state. Jim talked with Siobhan Keirans on KFAI’s “Morning Blend” about his documentary, and played a portion of the film's trailer to set the scene.
