Reel Connections: THE CHOIR

Reel Connections: THE CHOIR

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.
