In 2013 a crew filmed a moving documentary that highlighted the relationship between the local peoples, the Gomeroi, and the Pilliga area, and the threat of encroaching CSG. It features Jane Judd and Aunty Maureen Sulter, and the wonderful landscape that is the Pilliga.

Jane and Milton Judd discovered their land was on a significant ceremonial area and handed it back to the traditional owners to ensure its future care and that its history would continue on.  The group that was formed to take care of the area now looks after other sites in the Pilliga.

The film is produced and directed by Mark Pearce and will make its international debut at the Byron Bay Film Festival on the 7th March.
