UK soul sensation and TV presenter Mica Paris will host the screening with a Q&A to follow.
The film tells the inspirational story of one man and his life's mission to instil confidence, pride and hope into the children of his South African township, through the transformative power of music. Featuring a stunning soundtrack, Fezeka’s Voice follows the ups and downs and triumphs of the Fezeka High School choir as they go on the greatest journey of their lives - preparing to come to England to perform at the Salisbury International Arts Festival and the Cardiff Millennium Centre.
The film has already won the Audience Award for Best Documentary Film at the Tri-Continental Film Festival in South Africa and earned the following accolade from Archbishop Desmond Tutu: "This film needs to be shared with as wide an audience as possible. The power of mentorship, as demonstrated in this film, is extraordinary. I support this project whole-heartedly."
