Groundswell Rising is a powerful documentary 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 of the film. It was shot on location in Colorado, Pennsylvania, New York, and Washington, DC.

“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
“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”. — Mark Ruffalo
