Reel Connections: THE CHOIR
16 May 2013 | Thursday 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Once again BEMAC brings engaging, challenging multicultural-based films to the big screen in Brisbane. Sponsored by Antidote Films, this award-winning documentary will be screened next Thursday 16th May at the Queensland Multicultural Centre.
Hailed as ‘truly a life changing film’ The Choir tells the incredible true story of a brotherhood of inmates singing to survive in the toughest prison in Africa.
Shot over four years, The Choir is the story of Jabulani Shabangu and a group of fellow inmates who are battling to survive in Leeukwop Prison, South Africa’s largest prison. Jabulani is rebellious and angry until he meets a wily old bank robber named Coleman, who recruits him for the prison choir.
