Directed by Christiaan Olwagen
When Johan Niemand, gets called up for military service at the age of 18 in 1986 South Africa, he auditions and is accepted to the South African Defence Choir called the ‘Canaries’. Against a landscape where law and religion oppress individuality, Johan and the Canaries have to survive military training and go on a nationwide tour of the country – where Johan starts questioning his religion, patriotism, and sexuality, and where his emerging creativity and passion for music leads to direct conflict with his commanding officers.
Kanarie is being screened as part of Pink Screen at The Projector presented by NBCU and Salesforce – a series of screenings that showcase the talent, struggles and victories of the LGBTQ community across different countries and cultures.
Our aim is to present a curated selection of films that celebrate both personal and universal LGBTQ stories. We believe in film as a source of catharsis and as a vehicle to inspire, motivate and challenge prejudice and established perceptions. Through this series of screenings we intend to not only entertain, but to also spark conversations and connections, to educate and to provide much needed representation and diversity in the current film offerings in Singapore.
Standard Tickets $13.50, Concession Tickets $11.50
