Dying For Gold

After Encounters, we take pride in being able to host extended runs of the festival's highlights. With legal cases underway right now, there was never been a more important time to watch this film and understand this crucial moment in South Africa.

Directors: Catherine Meyburgh and Richard Pakleppa. Documentary / 1h 39min

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.

The Lion King Sing-Along

After the sold out successes of the Rocky Horror, Mamma Mia, Mary Poppins, and Greatest Showman Sing-Alongs hosted at The Bioscope, our Sing-Along returns with the timeless Disney classic The Lion King.
With the live action reboot on its way, lets celebrate the 90s original classic in the best way possible, by singing its incredible soundtrack at the top of our lungs! This is your chance to unleash those previously inhibited musical-watching urges, and finally be in a safe space to sing your favourite musical numbers at the top of your lungs! No judgies here.

This is one for all ages, including the 30 year old kids out there. For the adults, there will be a FREE shot of Rafiki's special medicine* to help grease those windpipes on your way in. As well as wherever possible, we'll try to have some friends in the audience to help lead the singing and pitching!
*(alcohol not for persons under the age of 18).

PLEASE KEEP CHECKING BACK AFTER BUYING TICKETS TO SEE THE PROPOSED ACTIVITIES PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE FILM, AND THE PROP LIST YOU'LL NEED TO BRING ALONG. - All of which are totally optional on your part btw!

1. Bring a plush toy you can raise at the moments anyone is held up high at Pride Rock by Rafiki.
2. Sour worms you eat when Simba tries out the diet of Timon and Pumbaa.
