GetUp Sydney-Grayndler December MeetUp and Film Night!

For our final MeetUp of the year, we are having a super special event!

We will be screening the film UNDERSTOREY - Directed by award winning wildlife photographer David Gallan, featuring: Roland Breckwoldt, Bob Brown, Euey Collins, Heather Meek, Jack Miller, Kim Taysom

How do you value a forest? - the forest we all own
When intensive logging threatened native forests on the far south coast of NSW, Australia, local people from all walks of life came 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.

Understorey has been rated M for this screening - the film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.

We are raising money for our hosts, the Society of Friends, who have lent us their beautiful hall for our Monthly MeetUps, and who continue to provide a space for local community groups. They have been hit hard with expenses related to the Light Rail, and we do not want to see them lose their home! Sydney cannot afford to lose more affordable progressive venues.

So, we will be asking for a donation of $10 or $20 for the film. Refreshments will be provided.
