Triple Divide is unlike any other film about the gas drilling industry that has come before. In their co-creation of Triple Divide, Melissa Troutman and Joshua Pribanic break new ground with a cradle to grave investigation of shale extraction.
The Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition of Luzerne County will be presenting Triple Divide on Thursday, May 9 at 7pm, Temple B’Nai B’rith, 408 Wyoming Ave Kingston, PA. A Q&A with the Joshua Pribanic will follow the film. Free to the public.
The title of the film reflects one of Pennsylvania’s very special places; the triple continental divide in north-central Pennsylvania, close to the New York border. Rainwater from this area can flow to three sides of the North American continent; down the Susquehanna River to the Chesapeake Bay, down the Allegheny River to the Gulf of Mexico, and down the Genesee River to the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada.
Co-narrated by Mark Ruffalo, Triple Divide features never before seen interviews with industry giants and advocates, uncovered state documents, and expert testimonies. Triple Divide shows the desperate situation in Pennsylvania through personal stories of people who are living the drill.
If you breathe air and drink water, this is a wake-up call to the reality that we are all downstream and downwind.
