WHAT: Split Estate is a 76-minute documentary chronicling the David-vs-Goliath struggle currently raging over oil and gas production in the United States. While the film focuses on the social, environmental, and health costs of natural gas and oil production in the western United States, it offers insight into the universal politics among government entities, oil and gas interests, and citizens in resource-rich residential areas (including Ohio).  
Split Estate presents a prime opportunity for concerned citizens to learn how to change drilling practices and make the gas and oil industry accountable to the communities in which it operates. It features scenes with landowners, community activists, and U.S. Senators John Kerry and Tom Udall.  Some of the long-term health risks of oil and gas development are described by Theo Colborn, PhD, Daniel Thau Teitelbaum, MD, and Kendall Gurdes, MD.  What you don’t know can hurt you!
