The Plot 

Set in South Africa in 1985 against a backdrop of apartheid, religion, and war, the film follows a teen boy, Johan Niemand, who has always been bullied in his small town for his flair for British new wave music and love of Boy George. After he gets called on by the military and auditions for the Kanaries (the South African Defence Force Church Choir and Concert Group), he believes the choir will be his ticket out of fighting the war, but he begins to see the role he plays in the oppression and injustice around him. On tour, he develops feelings for a fellow Kanarie and he starts to question everything he knows about himself, leading to a confrontation with his commanding officers.

Kanarie is a love story. A film about finding individuality in a world of oppression and uniformity.

  2. After lunch we’ll head down to New Farm Cinemas to be there about 2.15pm.
