'Triple Divide' film to be screened Sept. 20 in Summit County

By Bob Downing Published: September 9, 2013

The Portage Trail of the Sierra Club is hosting a showing of a new film Triple Divide on Sept. 20.

The film, a look at shale drilling in northern Pennsylvania and how it was managed by the Department of Environmental Protection, will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Springfield Township Community and Senior Center, 2459 Canfield Road, just off U.S. 224.

Filmmakers Joshua B. Pribanic from Ohio and Melissa Troutmen from Pennsylvania will be at the screening to discuss the film.

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 film is narrated by actor Mark Ruffalo.

The movie was premiered last March in Coudersport, Pa.

Free but donations will be accepted.

Seating is limited. To reserve a spot, send an email to or phone Jerry at 330-784-1960.

The film is scheduled to be shown at 10 locations in Ohio, starting this week.

The other Ohio locations are Bowling Green, Rocky River, Columbus, Granville, Mansfield, Salem, Sandusky, Maumee and Youngstown.

The tour is being sponsored by the Ohio Environmental Council.
