Jozi Gold

"The height of the goldrush era in Johannesburg is over, leaving behind a far-reaching environmental disaster. With intelligence, courage and determination, Maritte Liefferink fights to make the rich, powerful mining companies take their responsibility."

Doc Lounge Växjö visar internationella dokumentärfilmer på engelska/med engelsk text. I samarbete med Folkets Bio Växjö.

CHANGE OF PLANS - the regular screening of Jozi Gold will be cancelled due to the situation of the corona-virus outbreak.

Instead we recommend all of you to watch the movie on its VOD release in the comfort of your own homes. 

In solidarity with cinemas that are still up and running, Jozi Gold will have its Swedish cinema premiere on April 3 as planned. At the same time, the film will be released online for audiences all across Sweden.

On April 5 at 5 pm the audience is invited for a live online Q&A on Facebook, where main character Mariette Liefferink and directors Fredrik Gertten and Sylvia Vollenhoven will answer questions from the audience sent in through social media
