Triple Divide is said to be the only documentary of its kind on the controversial subject of fracking, capable of speaking to all sides of the issue with exclusive interviews from the industry, environmental and political experts, and Americans suffering as a result of shale gas development. http://tripledividefilm.org/
"It's hard to imagine anyone could have a fully-informed opinion about fracking without seeing Triple Divide," said Jed Thorp of the Ohio Sierra Club after seeing the film for the first time this summer.
Triple Divide attempts to answer the question, "How are state regulations and industry handling impacts from fracking?"
Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates this 18-month cradle-to-grave investigation by Public Herald, an investigative news nonprofit co-founded by journalists Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman. Triple Divide features never before seen interviews with industry giants and advocates, exclusive reports with impacted landowners, uncovered state documents, and expert testimonies.
The film reveals how water contamination is being covered up by the industry and the state, essentially rewriting the history of water quality in Pennsylvania by dismissing predrill tests. Meanwhile, state regulators are using compliance as a means of regulating without enforcing the law, abandoning the public in the wake of shale gas development.
