Groundswell Rising

Through candid interviews and true stories, Groundswell Rising brings us into the lives of people directly impacted by hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and those on the front lines, dedicated to stopping this form of gas extraction.

Infusing human rights, public health, and social justice into a deeply engaging, feature length documentary film, Groundswell Rising empowers viewers to make a difference in their communities.
