Synopsis

Billy Elliot with a saxophone meets Buena Vista Social Club in Cape Town” summarises this vibrant film to kick off the 15th Festival. It is the latest film from our special guest, Dame Janet Suzman.

Felix's father used to play in the hottest jazz band in the Cape but his untimely death meant that his mother bans the Devil’s Music from the home.

At age 13 Felix starts to discover not only his musical roots but his own hitherto untapped talent.
