About the event
Join this Denmark Premiere screening of the new film ‘Fighting Giants’ on Pibbelmun Menang boodja at Denmark Arts House on Friday 16 June, 5.30 pm - 7:00 pm. RSVP below (limited tickets). Doors open 5.15pm and a light dinner will be available.
The Kimberley has some of the largest intact natural landscapes left in the world. It is also a culturally rich region, home to a living Aboriginal culture that is many tens of thousands of years old, where many Traditional Owners have a deep connection to Country.
But fracking companies are the closest they've ever been to turning the region into an industrial wasteland. So we teamed up with Kimberley Traditional Owners, climate scientists and economists from The Australia Institute to produce this new film.
‘Fighting Giants’ is a rallying call to defend so many things that West Australians value: the stunning, intact landscapes of the Kimberley, our fragile climate, and Aboriginal culture and land.
In our beautiful south, Denmark is on the way to ‘100% Electric’ run on ‘100% Renewables’ and we need to accelerate this rate of change. Totally Renewable Denmark (auspiced by Green Skills) is set out to facilitate this change and is driven by knowing that every community needs to make significant changes to transition away from fossil fuels as fast as we can. As well as community and individual level change, advocacy at a State level is also required FOR Renewables, and AGAINST Gas, Oil + Coal.
This powerful film is a drive to action, and the event will be a special community gathering where you can hear from Simone van Hattem from Lock the Gate Alliance on ways you can support the Frack Free Kimberley campaign, and hear from Rhian Thomas about Totally Renewable Denmarks’ latest news and event happenings. Following the film there will be a 15min Q&A and an opportunity to write a short, impactful letter to a key state government politician, to express your concerns about fracking- together we can make our voice heard!
We'll also have a table with more information about Totally Renewable Denmark, and Frack Free Kimberley stickers and fairtrade organic cotton T-shirts $30 (cash or card).
