Storyline

Coal, Corruption and community resistance of one of Australias most controversial mining projects Whitehavens Maules Creek Coal Mine in the Leard State Forest.

The stage has been set for one of the most intriguing David and Goliath battles in this countrys history. Black Hole is the story of the fight to save the Leard State Forest from one of the most controversial coal mining projects in Australia Whitehavens Maules Creek Coal Mine.

Set against the backdrop of the mining industrys ever-increasing thirst for fossil fuels, Black Hole is an intense and riveting exposé of the tensions between large corporations, the Australian government and the community.

In this revealing world premiere, Director João Dujon Pereira asks us to examine the future of coal, corporate responsibility and the rights governments afford to people vs polluters.

Best remedy to apathy is awareness
11 December 2015 | by fcaruetteSee all my reviews

Everyone who cares about our beautiful country (Australia) should see this. The first remedy to apathy is awareness and this movie is very good at raising it for us, general public. I am very humbled that some people spent years of their life giving everything they have to live in those camps and that someone cared enough to film a relentless 700 hours of footage and bring this condensed version to the city theaters. They intend to start Community screening next year and I hope we can all help them get the word out i.e. get the DVD and screen it in Community nights for instance in local yoga studios and willing participating cinemas.
