“Split Estate is a moving portrait that highlights important questions regarding the safety of hydraulic fracturing near our local communities.” - U.S. Representative Diana DeGette, Colorado. - 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. Split Estate maps a tragedy in the making, as 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.
