Pilliga Rising Screening: Lismore

Join us for this gorgeous new film about the Pilliga forest and the people that are fighting to protect it from CSG.

Friday 1st March, 6:00 - 8:00pm, Z Block, Southern Cross University (Park on Rifle Range Road and follow the signs).

Don’t miss this moving tale of four characters, worlds-apart, united by their love of the Pilliga forest and determination to protect it from coal seam gas. A loving father, a young Indigenous multimedia artist, an experienced citizen scientist and a businesswoman-potter who has made the Pilliga her home rise up to protect water, people, country and community from a proposed coal seam gasfield in the Pilliga forest.

An oil and gas corporation plans to drill 850 wells through the Great Artesian Basin – one of the largest underground freshwater reservoirs in the world – which recharges in the Pilliga. This is the story of the Pilliga told by the people rising to defend it.

Check out these glowing reviews!

"Pilliga Rising is the mesmerising, heartbreaking, exhilarating tale of a community unified in defence of land and livelihood. See it, and see it soon.”

–Elizabeth Farrelly PhD, Columnist, Sydney Morning Herald

“Pilliga Rising provides a deeply penetrating insight into one of the great tragedies of our time: the devastation wrought by coal seam gas production.”

–David Donovan, Managing Editor, Independent Australia
