Split Estate

Film and Discussion
Event detail
 

This compelling Emmy Award winning documentary shows the dirty side of hydraulic fracturing and natural gas, an energy source the industry touts as a clean alternative to fossil fuels.

Imagine discovering that you don't own the mineral rights under your land, and that an energy company plans to drill for natural gas two hundred feet from your front door. Imagine having little recourse, other than accepting an unregulated industry in your backyard. SPLIT ESTATE shows citizens in the path of a new drilling boom in the Rocky Mountain West struggle against the erosion of their civil liberties, their communities and their health.

As public health concerns mount, SPLIT ESTATE looks at an industry touted as a clean alternative to fossil fuels, and drives home the need for real alternatives.

Will Rostov, staff attorney in Earthjustice’s California office, will lead a discussion following the film.
