The Bentley Effect at The Randwick Ritz (Aug 8th- New South Whales, AU)

  • The Ritz Cinema 45 Saint Pauls Street Randwick, NSW, 2031 Australia (map)

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 and Peter Nielsen.

Tickets: $12 (concession), $15 (adult) or $20 (passionate supporter)

Hosted by Eastern Suburbs Coal and Gas Watch and Lock the Gate Alliance.
