Shifty September - THE SINGING CLUBS Two documentaries with Q&A

Friday 12 September - Alliance Française - Singers & Swenkas screening at 6 pm & The Silver Fez screening at 7.30 pm


Two documentaries with Q&A

From distant corners of the South Africa, from radically different origins and communities, Lloyd Ross’ documentaries Singers & Swenkas (52 minutes) and The Silver Fez (84 minutes) illustrate the diversity and depth of South African choir club culture. From the Nederlands Lied originating in the days of slavery that is kept alive by the descendants of the Cape, to the Isicathamiya culture of Zulu migrant labour, these films celebrate the passion that drives men to spend practically all their free time singing their hearts out.
