Bimblebox - Monday Night Movie

Event Description

Australia's Bimblebox Nature Refuge lies in the path of the earths largest coal mines. One woman decides to resist the "China First" project. The film follows the story of Alpha resident Paola Cassoni and her two-year fight to prevent the 8000ha Bimblebox Nature Refuge - which she co-owns - from being swallowed by Clive Palmer's proposed China First coal mine.

Directed by US-based filmmaker Michael O'Connell, the movie placed Ms Cassoni's story in the wider context of massive coal and coal seam-gas expansion in Australia and its impacts on farm land, communities and the environment.

At this critical time, when so much coal and coal seam gas expansion is planned in Australia, this film aims to win the hearts and minds of the people, exposing the destructiveness of this industry to our climate, communities and environment. It tells the stories of the people fighting for their homes and culture. Australia is the worlds largest exporter of coal, providing almost one third of the worlds supply. It is impossible to address climate change without looking at Australia’s role in the planets climate future.

Dramatic footage is shown of the encroachment of mining onto agricultural land, and interviews with Hunter Valley, Illawarra, Bowen Basin and Darling Downs residents illuminate the social, economic, environmental and health impacts of mining in those regions.

It is a must see film if you care about our land and the future of our children.

Questions and answers will follow the movie session with a special GUEST SPEAKER.
