*If you breathe air and drink water, Triple Divide is a wake-up call to the reality that we are all downstream and downwind.*

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 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 Actor Mark Ruffalo, Triple Divide features never before seen interviews with industry giants and advocates, uncovered state documents, and expert testimonies. The film shows the desperate situation in Pennsylvania through personal stories of people who are “living the drill”. If you breathe air and drink water, Triple Divide is a wake-up call to the reality that we are all downstream and downwind.
