When the Northern Rivers of NSW community found their home being threatened by gas field industrialization, a critical mass of citizens from all walks of life responded to the call. Their deep love of the land led to a massive social movement and a historic showdown in Bentley, outside Lismore NSW. What happened in this once peaceful valley has now become the stuff of legend and is reverberating around the globe. Told through the eyes of the "Protectors" over a five-year period and inter-cut with fresh insight from some of the world's leading social commentators, this feature documentary captures and celebrates what is described as the non-violent 'Eureka Stockade' of our time.Written by
Great storytelling that's beautifully produced. Watch it for a dose of optimism.
This is by far the most powerful and inspiring movie I have seen on effective community organizing and activism to protect our precious planet for future generations. It's highly recommended for a dose of optimism. In a fine example of great storytelling, this beautifully produced movie is a gripping tribute to the commitment of the people of the Northern Rivers, who put their bodies on the line to care for the earth that sustains us.
