It rang scientifically true and correct. Many films about fracking, either pro or con, tend to be a bit “attention grabbing and sensational” not a bad thing regardless of your take on the subject because films are a message media rather than just a documentation of a scientific experience. Triple Divide and the recent Chasing Ice are films that document a scientific reality. I am very appreciative when a film “gets it right” actually reports a scientific process or situation as it is, rather than grabs attention with an over the wall presentation or something that is fabricated. Short of Nova, Nature and Cosmos, I don’t often see straight science. That’s what Triple Divide gave the audience and why it is so devastating, because it is real.
Neither partisan nor hyperbolic, Triple Divide is an honest look at an industry that deserves more scrutiny. The film explores and uncovers the haphazard way in which natural gas has been exploited in Pennsylvania, causing significant damage to formerly-pristine waterways. It clearly illustrates through painstaking investigative journalism how current safety measures and industry standards have proven entirely inadequate. I highly recommend this film to anyone who lives in the immediate area of hydraulic natural gas fracking, as well as those downstream from a drilling site. – Andrew Riedy, Security Policy (Washington, D.C.)
Best movie on fracking to date, facts not fiction or spin. – Robert Donnan, Shale Researcher/Pennsylvania
Columbus, OH Screening:
“It’s hard to imagine anyone could have a fully-informed opinion about fracking without seeing Triple Divide. The filmmakers use cold hard facts and first-hand accounts to show how this industry is impacting real people. If you liked Gasland, you’ll love Triple Divide.” – Jed Thorp, Ohio Sierra Club
This film will inspire anyone to form an opinion, and change many others! Great Cinematography as well, for their first production, I’m Impressed! – Red Gables Mesquite Grill
An eye opening and absolute must see. There is no way to turn away from facts and the truth which, with great documentaries like this one, will hopefully create change in the way these companies impact our communities and help oil the slow moving machines of government given the task to protects us from such dangers. great work Joshua B. Pribanic and the rest of the team! – Jock Armour, Actor/Screenwriter
“Triple Divide put such a human face on the devastation caused by fracking…” – Sister Marlene Bertke, Benedictine Sister for Peace
Anyone wanting the benefit of a six-week course on the pros and cons of fracking in a mere 90 minutes will appreciate the documentary “Triple Divide.”
“Triple Divide is a sophisticated film that takes its viewers on a journey to find the truth. Through the firsthand testimonies and overall structure of the documentary, viewers enjoy the fruits of meticulous research and high-quality investigative journalism. Although Triple Divide covers one of the most serious and time-sensitive environmental issues of our time, it also offers many beautiful shots, ones that you would imagine seeing in a fine art film. That is the brilliance of Triple Divide: it captures our hearts and delights our tastes for aesthetic beauty while revealing the severity of an unjust reality, a reality that we can change for the better. We must collectively defeat and overcome the false promises, outright lies, and manipulations of the fracking industry, both in the United States and globally. Our state of health, environment, and future are all on the line. We may not have all of the answers and solutions to our energy challenges fully developed and worked out, but we do know, thanks to documentary projects like Triple Divide, that fracking has never been and will Never be an answer, Not in the short-run or in the long-run. Thank you to the filmmakers of Triple Divide for further communicating and illuminating that truth.”
The very best Documentary on the hazards of fracking on our environment. You must see this. – Organizations United for the Environment
