Dying For Gold - Official Trailer

South Africa’s wealth and white privilege has been funded by large scale maiming and killing of people by the gold mining industry.
Today gold miner communities across Southern Africa have nothing to show for the wealth they produced except extreme rural underdevelopment and the world’s worst epidemic of TB and silicosis. 

Through testimonies from communities in mining families throughout Southern Africa and extensive use of contrasting archive materials DYING FOR GOLD tells the story of how we have arrived at this extraordinary situation.
DYING FOR GOLD brings to the surface the real cost of South African gold.
