Dr Ian Wright has been investigating pollution from mines in the UNESCO World Heritage Blue Mountains for over ten years. "Mining The Blue Mountains" takes you on a journey into the wilderness of Grose Valley and along its waterways with Ian and his team of water researchers. Mines have been synonymous with economic growth around NSW for over a century. However as these mines reach the end of their shelf life most are simply locked up and left to continue to pollute our river systems - so who cleans up the mess?
The documentary launched at a premiere screening at Mt Vic Flicks in the Blue Mountains to a sold out audience and then a Facebook premiere which has over 6,000 views. The film has been entered in a number of local and international film festivals and now we want to take it to a wider local audience!
