Here, Miners Shot Down will be in competition for the Camera Justitia award, that is presented to a film that sheds light on the many angles of the human rights and justice theme.

Miners Shot Down goes to Marikana

We have always been determined that the first place to show the finished film is in Marikana itself. For this reason, on Monday 17th February, a pre-release special screening will take place in Wonderkop Community Hall, Marikana. It’s not going to be easy, feelings are still so raw, the families have had no justice, and eighteen months on, platinum miners are still fighting for a living wage, this time with a protected strike led by AMCU. It’s going to be an important screening. We’ll keep you posted.
