It’s the 1980s and Johan (Schalk Bezuidenhout) loves pop music. So when he’s called up to do his mandatory military service, thankfully he finds his way to the army choir – a place where he can express the burgeoning yearnings of his heart. And while he may struggle to find his place in the ragtag troop of his fellow singers, all on the cusp of manhood, his bigger fight is with himself, especially when he starts having feelings for a pal. 


In the coming-of-age genre, it can be hard for films to stand apart from the pack. Not Kanarie. Beautiful, funny and just left of centre, it presents an achingly sharp and insightful portrayal of a young man who wants to dance, not walk, to the Bronski Beat of his own drum.
