The film Rivertree will be screened at the Kyogle Memorial Institute Hall Banquet Room at 5.30pm tomorrow, Tuesday, May 21.

Along the way, they talk to local people and uncover the mining industry’s risky plans to dig up the hills behind their home.

The film is is narrated by Aunty Lenore – “Freshwater, saltwater people, old and new, black and white, we are all river people, she connects us all. We are the custodians and stewards of our great rivers, and now we must stand together, all of us, our united voices have the power to move like the river when it comes out into the ocean.”

There will be guest speakers including tales of a trip down the Richmond River by some intrepid locals in kayaks.
