One Mining Company, a protest camp running for over 700 days, 280 voluntary arrests and counting, a State Forest home to 396 Species of native fauna and flora, 34 of which are endangered. What is this all about?
Black Hole explores the fight to stop the clearing of the Leard State Forest in Australia, transforming it into an open cut coal mine. Black Hole is a feature documentary that aims to tell the Maules Creek story through the voices of the many diverse and colourful characters including the Local Farmers, Indigenous Elders, Scientists, Community Supporters, Mining company personal, Police and Politicians. The community concerns range from the destruction of sacred Indigenous burial sites, the clear felling of one of the last intact areas of White Box Forests, including the native flora and fauna, water table contamination, water acquisition rights, coal dust pollution and cost of living just to name a few.
