Film: Felix (Roberta Durrant, South Africa, 2013, 97min. In English and Xhosa with Eng ST)
Described as "Billy Elliott with Cape jazz,” the film follows 14-year-old Felix as he dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father. When he leaves his township to take up a scholarship at an elitist private school, he defies his mother and turns to two aging members of his father’s old band to help him prepare for the school jazz concert.
