Guarding the Galilee

is this month’s Movies that Matter being held on

Tuesday 12 September, 7.30pm.

Upstairs at the Vic Hotel, Woodend.

Guarding the Galilee is presented by Queensland-born actor Michael Caton. It is a half-hour documentary about the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history, Adani’s proposed Carmichael project. The award-winning documentary team captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources. Just downstream from the proposed mine, a grazier fears for the impact on the river that quenches the thirst of his cattle and flows to the Coral Sea. On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie Beach tourist hotspot worries about hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year. Meet these and many others engaged in the fight and find out what mining billionaire Gautam Adani has planned for Australia. The documentary launched in April 2017 and is available at no cost for community screenings.

Movies that Matter is a program of films has been selected to achieve a mix of thought-provoking, educating, motivating and inspiring stories about our planet, the threats it faces and the people working to implement sustainable solutions.
