In commemoration of Human Rights Day, Amnesty International Durban presents the screening of the award winning South African documentary, Shore Break. The film uncovers the struggle of the Xolobeni community to protect their ancestral lands from the threat of mining and forced evictions.

Nonhle Mbuthuma, a young local eco-tour guide, and staunch supporter of her people and the endangered environment on which their livelihood and culture depends, wants to develop eco-tourism in order to protect her community’s homes, farms, graves and traditional lifestyle. Mbuthuma opposes the mining operations and highway construction in the Xolobeni area.

The Shore Break unpacks the dilemma faced by a rural community on South Africa’s Wild Coast as to whether to support or resist a proposed titanium mining project that could fundamentally change their lives forever.

The film will be screened at 18h00 on March 20, 2019, at Phansi Museum, 500 Ester Roberts Road, Glenwood. Entrance R20 contribution
