From the township of Khayelitsha to the downtown of Cape Town, the members of the a cappella band Major Voices open the doors of their daily life between contrasts. Assisting the director with the camera, they introduce us to their lifestyle and share their vision; nine young voices that spread hope, love and smiles to brighten the future. They take us to a colorful, rhythmic and authentic journey into a South African reality full of hope.
I met Major Voices in May 2017, we became very close and kept in touch. These young adults are extremely talented and have a very rich and deep story. They never got the chance to shine like they should so this film was made to give them the opportunity to express themselves about their art, their story and their community. Amanene is the result of a harmonious combination of my images and theirs, a total immersion in their daily life and reality. A film that shares a light instead of darkness.
