20 Years of Democracy in South Africa | Q&A Screening "Miners Shot Down"
August 2012: Escalating police violence during the seventh day of a miners’ strike leads to the “Massacre of Marikana.” Thirty-four workers died and many more were injured. Rehad Desai accompanied the strike from day one and confronts audiences with footage of the events as they transpired, interviews with strike leaders and lawyers, as well as film footage from the ensuing investigative commission. An impressive document about a bitter low point in a young democratic South Africa.
