2015 International Emmy® Award for Miners Shot Down24.11.2015
We are proud that our film MINERS SHOT DOWN by Rehad Desai has won the 2015 International Emmy® Award for the Best Documentary. The film tells the story of the 2012 Marikana massacre. To date, MINERS SHOT DOWN has been shown in 76 festivals across 37 countries and won over 20 awards.
“We are continuously humbled by the way the film is being appreciated by audiences all over the world. It shows how deeply disturbed people are about what happened at Marikana on 16 August 2012. It is now three years on and the commission of inquiry came to close a year ago. We await a fair and just outcome for the victims.”, says director Rehad Desai.
The injured and arrested, along with the families of those killed at Marikana, recently learned that President Jacob Zuma plans to appoint a judge assisted by legal experts to expedite the process of civil claims. While this is welcomed, those affected by the massacre are very clear that is not enough. They want criminal prosecution of all those responsible for the massacre.
