Triple Divide, a documentary film

Monday, April 21, 7:15 p.m.
Kendal at Oberlin auditorium

Triple Divide is said to be the only documentary of its kind on the controversial subject of fracking capable of speaking to all sides, with exclusive interviews from the industry, experts, and Americans suffering in the wake of shale gas development… Academy Award nominated actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates the film, taking part in the project after being shown an online screener a few weeks before the final release. The film is co-directed by journalists Joshua Pribanic & Melissa Troutman.

The 90-minute documentary is a project by PublicHerald.org, a Pennsylvania based nonprofit organization.

Film - Carbon Nation

Thursday, August 23, 7:15 p.m., Heiser Auditorium, Kendal at Oberlin.

Carbon Nation is about climate change SOLUTIONS. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don't buy it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how SOLUTIONS to climate change also address other social, economic and national security issues. You'll meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters along the way. A member of the Sierra Club will be there to facilitate a discussion following the showing.

Watch the official trailer.
