July : The Choir (2007)

Shot over six years The Choir is the true story of Jabulani Shabangu and a group of fellow inmates battling to survive in South Africa’s biggest prison. Jabulani is rebellious and angry until he meets a wily old bank robber named Coleman, who recruits him for the prison choir. Jabulani rises in the ranks and leads the inmates to an extraordinary performance at the National Prisoner Choir Competition.

But there’s more at stake than a contest to see who sings the best. The brotherhood of choirsters, with Coleman’s fatherly guidance, have the power to transform Jabulani’s life and give him the courage to face his victims and survive in the world outside – if only he can overcome the violence and heartbreak of his past.

From Australia. Rated M. 1:28 mins
