The Giant is Falling

U.S PREMIERE
SUN, Nov. 26 @ 3:15pm – TC 179GD
SUN, Dec. 3 @ 8pm – TC Chapel
WED Dec. 6 @ 3:30pm – Cinema Village

The Giant is Falling takes us through the big political events of recent years that signify the dying days of the ANC in South Africa. Locating the moment when things fell apart as the Marikana Massacre, the film charts the various ways people have collectively responded to the ANC’s failure to deliver on its promises. From the end of the ANC’s special relationship with the trade unions, to the #FeesMustFall student movement, to the more recent crushing electoral losses at the polls for the party of liberation, the film picks at the festering sore of inequality that is making the current status quo untenable.
