SUN, MARCH 18 @ 2PM - MINING FOR CHANGE, A STORY OF SOUTH AFRICAN MINING
SUN, MARCH 18 @ 2PM  MINING FOR CHANGE, A STORY OF SOUTH AFRICAN MINING (NY Premiere) by Eric Miyeni, Navan Chetty (72mins)

From the optimism of the 1955 Kliptown Freedom Charter to Mandela's astonishing statement in 1992 that he had been unable to 'persuade' the G7 at Davos to 'allow' South Africa to nationalise its mines, Mining For Change tracks the intriguing history of the country's most important industry. The failures of the Mining Charter and new calls for nationalisation are debated by scores of heavyweights, from Oppenheimer and Malema to Ramaphosa and Mandela, who reveal back room discussions on the global pressure that forced the nationalisation u-turn. New voices in the mining industry, as well as labour and rights groups uncover the wealth, systems and interests that have kept the industry as untouchable as it is. The film steers a considered path between social and business aspects, measuring debate about the need to transform against the need to stay globally competitive. Compelling cinema and essential viewing for anyone interested in the real future of South Africa.
