    Mining for Change

From the optimism of the 1955 Kliptown Freedom Charter to Mandela’s 1992 admission to being unable to ‘persuade’ the G7 at Davos to ‘allow’ South Africa to nationalise mines, Mining For Change tracks the intriguing history of SA’s most important industry.

The film steers a considered path between social and business aspects, measuring debate of the need to transform against the need to stay globally competitive. New voices uncover the wealth, systems and interests that have kept the industry ‘untouchable’.

"Imperative to watch for anyone interested in the real future of South Africa."
