Triple Divide: Fracking Documentary

Categories:
Date: 
Fri, 09/12/2014 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Description: 

Public Herald investigative journalists Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman will be in Portlnad to screen their debut documentary, Triple Divide.

Triple Divide deconstructs the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) handling of shale gas development. Touted as a modern day gold rush for landowners, the controversial technology of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) shatters shale formations to release trapped fossil fuel resources.

Pribanic and Troutman take audiences on a cradle-to-grave journey to uncover how DEP and industry have handled violations within Pennsylvania’s highest classified watersheds, what happened in the 2011 Bradford County Blowout, water contamination complaints, health issues, and the split-estate landowner dispute.

In 2009, the desire to progress humankind while preserving the environment brought Patrick Beaulieu-Hardin (guitar) and Nate Stoll (drums) together at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. While both had a passion for the environment, they had an even bigger passion for music. Their musical and environmental connection was strong from the start, but they needed a name for their burgeoning craft. With bands cropping up everywhere using environmental cues for their monikers (knowingly or not) like Fleet Foxes, Arctic Monkeys, Animal Collective, and Wolf Parade, Patrick came up with what he thought at the time was one of the most mocking and absurd band names he could think of: White Bear Polar Tundra.

Consisting of twelve short films by twelve women artists, DIRTY DIARIES explores the new genre of "feminist porn" by challenging images of female sexuality. The project brings together artists, filmmakers and activists to express their own perspective on porn and female sexuality, offering an array of inventiveness and diversity, and, in the process, questioning conventional stereotypes of female and male sexuality.

The Clinton Street Theater Sex Worker series celebrates the accomplishments of sex worker film and video makers by screening relevant works about sex workers and the sex industries from around the world.

The films focus on sex workers' rights; organizing efforts and working conditions for strippers; global sex work and sex work as a labor issue on the international agenda; sex workers as artists; queer sex workers; sex work and gender identities; portraits of strippers, prostitutes, doms, madams and more.
