Strike a Rock + Q&A

August 14, 2017 - 6:00 pm till 8:30 pm

**After the screening we will be joined by director Aliki Saragas and two women from Sikhala Sonke Women’s group in Marikana: Thumeka Magwangqana and Primrose Sonti.**

Two years after the Marikana Massacre left 37 mine workers killed, filmmaker Aliki Saragas finds that the women of Sikhala Sonke (“We Cry Together”) are still struggling for justice. “Ma” Primrose Sonti is the matriarchal founder of the group, who hopes to take the fight to parliament as a newly elected MP. Her close friend Thumeka must now continue the work at home, but will she be able to overcome her sense of trepidation?
