“Triple Divide” is said to be the only documentary of its kind on the controversial subject of fracking capable of speaking to all sides, with exclusive interviews from the industry, experts, and Americans suffering in the wake of shale gas development. Academy Award nominated actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates the film, taking part in the project. The film is co-directed by journalists Joshua Pribanic & Melissa Troutman. The 90-minute documentary is a project by PublicHerald.org, a Pennsylvania based nonprofit organization.
“Triple Divide” is built on evidence from cradle-to-grave investigations that attempt to answer the question, “How are state regulations and industry handling impacts from fracking?”
The film allows opposed perspectives and aims to reach both ends of the public spectrum: community members and heads of state.”
The film reveals how water contamination is being covered up by the industry and the state, essentially rewriting water quality history in the United States by dismissing pre-drill 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.
