DVD – Dying to breathe – 48min

The struggle for environmental justice in South Africa.

Directed by Gillian Schutte & Sipho Singiswa
Produced by hands-on Productions.

A documentary about how the lives of ordinary people living in Sasolburg and South Durban have been turned into a daily struggle for health because of the excessively high levels of air pollution in these two areas. Dying to breathe – the struggle for environmental justice in South Africa – gives faces and names to many of the victims of industrial pollution in South Africa.  The film demonstrates the link between the untenable environmental conditions being experienced at a local level in Sasolburg and south Durban and national and international policy decisions, and exposes the need for corporate accountability and stringent pollution policies and laws.
