On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Charl-Johan Lingenfelder about Kanarie.
Kanarie tells the story of 18-year-old Johan Niemand (Schalk Bezuidenhout), who is called up for military service in 1985. He auditions and is accepted to the South African Defence Force Choir, called the ‘Canaries’.
When Johan discovers that he has growing feelings for a fellow choir member, he begins to question everything about himself and his world; his religion, patriotism, sexuality and the realities and truth of Apartheid South Africa.
