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.
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.
