The film, Triple Divide, will be shown Oct. 9 in Jackson Township.
The film will be screened at 6:30 p.m. at Kent State University's Stark Campus. Meet in the Main Hall Auditorium, 6000 Frank Ave. NW, Jackson Township.
The movie by filmmakers Joshua B. Pribanic and Melissa Troutmen looks at shale drilling in northern Pennsylvania and how it was managed by the state's Department of Environmental Protection.
The movie takes its name from the area of Potter County, Pa., where three continental divides for streams meet. It is an area where drillers have been active.
The film was developed by Public Herald, an investigative grass-roots group based in Coudersport, Pa. It is headed by Pribanic, a native of Sandusky, Ohio.
The movie was premiered last March in Coudersport, Pa.
