Split Estate

Best of the Festival Winner
"Split Estate"

Debra Anderson Imagine discovering that you don't own the mineral rights under your land, and that an energy company plans to drill for natural gas two hundred feet from your front door. Imagine having little recourse, other than accepting an unregulated industry in your backyard. Split Estate maps a tragedy in the making, as citizens in the path of a new drilling boom in the Rocky Mountain West struggle against the erosion of their civil liberties, their communities and their health.
Did I

Audience Choice Award Winner
"Did I Do OK?"

Rhythmic editing syncopates the visceral quality of the film and leaves the viewer with an intimate look at an abstract conceptual vagary.
