OEC Film Screenings: Triple Divide


Join the Ohio Environmental Council and Public Herald for screenings of the film Triple Divide across Ohio. Each screening includes an introduction by the filmmakers and Q&A with fracking experts following the screening.

Triple Divide chronicles an 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.

Triple Divide is Public Herald's first investigations into inevitable, negative impacts from shale gas industrial development and how those impacts are handled by the state, specifically the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

For each screening, times listed are start times for the film. We suggest arriving at least 30 minutes early to meet the filmmakers and receive educational materials about fracking.

Narrated with help from actor and advocate Mark Ruffalo, major findings include stark negligence and endangerment of public and environmental health due to shale gas extraction. Through personal stories, expert interviews, and investigation of state case files, Triple Divide tells a cautionary tale about the corruption of a public agency meant to regulate industry and protect the public and environment.

“It’s hard to imagine anyone could have a fully-informed opinion about fracking without seeing Triple Divide,” said Jed Thorp, Conservation Manager at the Sierra Club, Ohio Chapter. “The filmmakers use cold hard facts and first-hand accounts to show how this industry is impacting real people.”
