Overview

Split Estate is a fascinating and at times infuriating documentary in which American citizens learn their rights fail to protect them from big business. According to law, the inhabitants of the pristine, breathtakingly panoramic Garfield County, Colorado, don't own the natural-gas-producing minerals under their properties. And so, families are forced to look on from their windows as energy companies contstruct drilling rigs in their backyards. This unforgettable portrait comes from director Debra Anderson. ~ Jonathan Frey
