Soldiers of the rock
The soldiers of the rock
An immensely impressive student-fuelled feature film, directed by the star alumnus of the South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance.
Inspired by a news report about a fatal rock blast in the Harmony gold mine, the film tells the story of Vuyo, a student whose father dies in a mining accident and gives up his studies to experience for himself the dangerous working conditions that were his father’s everyday reality. An award winner at the 2003 Los Angeles Pan African Film Festival and 2003 Sithengi Cape Town International Cinema Festival.
