Full house for Bertha Foundation screening at the CTICC

CTICC screening

Monday, 3 March, saw the Bertha Foundation hosting a screening of Miners Shot Down at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, South Africa. There were 640 people in attendance, including trainee social justice lawyers, representatives from civil society and trade unions and many young, local activists.

With the invitation lists already full by the previous week, fifteen minutes before the doors closed, the organisers abandoned the lists and ushered everyone in.  With a one minute silence before the film, and a standing ovation at the end of it, this was a memorable event for those that attended.

“I was deeply touched, horrified and saddened by Miners Shot Down. I think that you have made a wonderful film, considered and so well done.”

Nodi Murphy, Director: Out in Africa
