A coming of age musical war drama set in 1985 during the height of the infamous apartheid regime in South Africa starring up and coming actor Schalk Bezuidenhout. The story line revolves around a small-town boy who gets called up and is chosen to serve his compulsory two-year military training in the South African defence force choir as a member of the concert group known as the ‘Canaries’.
KANARIE launched at the Inside Out Toronto Film Festival and has since dominated the North American LGBTQ festival circuit including centre piece gala screenings and closing night film slots at Outfest, Chicago Reeling LGBTQ Film Festival, Out on Film Atlanta, Twist Seattle Queer Film Festival, Image Out and Outshine. It will continue to tour the international festival circuit during 2019.
