August 2012, Marikana. Workers from one of South Africa's biggest mines begin a strike against their employer, British company Lonmin. 34 miners are shot dead by police and scores more left injured after a six day strike. Playing out like a political thriller, Director Rehad Desai pieces together what happened in those six days through TV archive, police footage, interviews with politicians, the miners and the lawyers representing them. Miners Shot Down reveals a devastating picture of the mechanism of power in South Africa. The final sequence is an uncompromising and chilling depiction of the extremities of police brutality.
