See the award-winning documentary ‘The Bentley Effect’ at the Randwick Ritz Cinema on Tuesday 8 August at 6.30pm.
Filmed over five years, this film documents an epic – and successful - struggle to keep Northern NSW free of invasive gasfields. The campaign culminated with dramatic community action in the peaceful farming valley of Bentley. What happened set an historic precedent and helped unleash a unique and inspiring social movement.
Screening followed by Q&A with local Bentley farmer and member of the Nationals Party, Meg Nielsen.
Tickets: $12 (concession), $15 (adult) or $20 (passionate supporter)
Hosted by Eastern Suburbs Coal and Gas Watch and Lock the Gate Alliance.
