This film should be watched by everyone on the side of industry and those considering leasing their land to the gas companies. Plain and simply, it’s the human side of this debate.

How many children need to get sick? How long do we threaten our air, water and sanctity of life before the alarms are heeded?
Groundswell Rising, Protecting Our Children’s Air And Water, the new documentary from Emmy Award-winning Resolution Pictures, captures the passion of people engaged in a David and Goliath confrontation. They stand together, challenging a system that promotes profit over health. We meet mothers, fathers, scientists, doctors, farmers and people from all sides of the political spectrum taking a hard look at energy extraction techniques not proven to be safe. With the Oil and Gas industry’s expansion of fracking seen as a moral issue, this provocative documentary tracks a people’s movement, a groundswell rising towards reason and sensitivity, to protect life, today and tomorrow.
“Groundswell Rising will get your blood going and your mind racing about how we can pull together to defend our communities from gas drilling and its crushing infrastructure.”— Tracy Carluccio, Deputy Director, Delaware Riverkeeper Network
