Split Estate is a compelling documentary that maps a tragedy in the making, as citizen in the path of the new drilling boom in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West struggle against the erosion of their civil liberties, their communities and their health.
Close to home, hydraulic fracturing, or fracing as it is frequently known, is occurring on farmland east of Union Reservoir and Longmont .
“Split Estate is a moving portrait that highlights important questions regarding the safety of hydraulic fracturing near our local communities.”
