Acclaimed documentary about a massacre of 34 mineworkers in South Africa.

In partnership with Just Film Co-op, we present a powerful, award-winning documentary from South Africa. Made by one of the country’s leading directors, Rehad Desai, the film unfolds in real time over seven days, documenting a group of mineworkers as they strike for better wages. Six days into the strike the police move in, killing 34 of the miners and injuring many more.
