About the film
The Bentley Effect is the story of the landmark struggle against coal seam gas fracking in the NSW Northern Rivers, which culminated in thousands of people blockading the industry at Bentley.
Filmed over five years, The Bentley Effect documents the highs and lows of the battle to keep a unique part of Australia gasfield-free. This timely story of a community’s heroic stand shows how strategic direct action and peaceful protest can not only overcome industrial might and political short-sightedness … but it can also be a lot of fun.
What to expect
This will be a fun night to connect with others who care about our environment. Bring a friend, or come alone, and get ready to be inspired by The Bentley Effect.
And get inspired for the Rising Tide People’s Blockade of the World’s Largest Coal Port in Newcastle in November.
