Groundswell Rising is a powerful film that documents a social movement that sprung forth from a heated debate over fracking and communities being sacrificed for the extraction of another fossil fuel. It’s about people taking charge of their communities and not allowing a dangerous industry to move in and harm their ways of life and finding new, healthy energy solutions.
This film explores the moral and ethical issues caused by this harmful and largely unregulated fracking industry. Groundswell Rising focuses on the people in the fractivist movement.
The film was directed and produced by Renard and Matt Cohen of Emmy Award winning Resolution Pictures; Mark Lichty, Executive Producer; and Dave Walczak, Associate Producer.
Event Sponsored by Philadelphia Brewing Company and Beautiful Business.
