    Hi David and Friends,
    I lived in Rocky Hall for a few years in the late 80’s – early 90’s and was a member of the Towamba valley catchment protection association. I was pretty heavily involved in the campaign on the ground with the protests and blockade actions, in the Coolangubra forest and on the chip mill road.
    I now live near Byron Bay on the far north coast and am wondering how I can get a copy of the film ‘understorey’.
    Have tried to find online but not sure if it is available there for sale?

      Hi Matt,
      The person to talk to about obtaining a copy of the film is David Gallan who is the creator and producer of the film. I will pass on your request to him for you.
      Best wishes,
