“The Bentley Effect” film tour – Spreading hope across NZ to grassroots communities. “One of the most important films of the century” described by Polly Higgins, renowned barrister, award winning author and international environmental lawyer.
Filmed over 5 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 protesting can overcome industrial might and political short-sightedness. It celebrates the power of non-violence and chronicles one of the fastest growing social movements we have ever witnessed.
