  • 3.3
Emmy-award winning documentary SPLIT ESTATE investigates the oil and natural gas drilling boom in the Rocky Mountain West and the Northeast (an area representing thirty-two states in all). 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 you have little or no recourse to protect your home or land from such development. SPLIT ESTATE maps a tragedy in the making as citizens in the path of a new drilling boom struggle against the erosion of their civil liberties, their communities and their health.

excellent

Much like Gasland the Movie this film shows actual suffering caused by individuals from oil and gas drilling, especially Fracking. This is something that will soon affect us all. Watch it.
