A free screening of the documentary “Triple Divide” will be presented by co-directors and journalists Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, in the Dresser Auditorium of the Murphy Professional Building at St. Bonaventure University.
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?”
It 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 members of the fracking industry, experts and Americans suffering in the wake of shale gas development.
Narrated by actor and advocate Mark Ruffalo, the film’s major findings include stark negligence and endangerment of public and environmental health due to shale gas extraction.
Sponsored by Concerned Citizens of Cattaraugus County, St. Bonaventure University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, School of Arts and Sciences, Franciscan Center For Social Concern, College Democrats and Tread Lightly, this screening is free and open to the public and offered as a plenary session for students in Clare 401.
