How do you value a forest? - the forest we all own
When intensive logging threatens native forests on the far south coast of NSW, Australia, local people from all walks of life come together to oppose it. It took decades and turned into the biggest environmental conflict in Australian history. Archival material and interviews outline what the campaigns were really like. Wildlife images show why the forests were worth protecting then and why people are still campaigning to protect our natural heritage today.
“The campaign for the South East Forests is an extraordinary story. The native forest ecosystems of the region are biologically complex and of global conservation significance.” Professor Tony Norton
Understorey has been rated M for this screening - the film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.
