This is a must see piece of Australian history
10 December 2015 | by rrlaginhaSee all my reviews

I spent a lot of this movie crying, it went straight to my heart. It's hard to comprehend that this is happening to our country, it is so unjust. I am so glad this is being documented. I hope we can turn the tide. Black Hole is a factual representation of the many parts of the story of this mine; from the beginning to the present happenings. It documents the corruption that has allowed this land to be taken off the hands of the public and importantly, the Gomeroi people; the traditional owners. It shows the techniques by the community of people who try and stop the mine- using direct action. Citizen science is used to record the endangered plants and animals in the forest whose habitat is destroyed. At this pivotal point in history in regards to climate change it is fascinating and important to see how the fight is playing out. It is a epic tale of David and Goliath; of corporate power being put up against people power, a beautiful tale.
