The extraordinary tale of a community who defied the gas juggernaut. We are crowdfunding now for the feature documentary that tells the story of the fastest growing social movement of our time and poses the question- what is truly valuable?
It’s about sharing the Bentley story with the world.
Whether you’re a farmer, a student, a banker, a teacher or even a miner, chances are you spend time outdoors, enjoying fresh clean air and nature. Today, vast areas of Australia are covered by unconventional gas mining licences. To put it simply, this means the mining industry and its supporters would have as much as half of this country become a network of gasfields.
And no-one wants to live in a gasfield.
We are seeking your help to crowdfund the rough cut of The Bentley Effect, a feature film that documents the extraordinary events that led to the suspension of the mining companies license.This film will be an inspirational look at one of Australia’s fastest growing social movements, as the community declared themselves protectors of the land and gasfield free. This now famous standoff forces us to ask the question - what is truly valuable?
