‘FELIX!’ the Musical Tale

Felix, All Lights Film Magazine, ALFMFELIX!’ the South African film directed by Roberta Durrant tells a story which is based on the rythms of music of life. The film tells the story of 14-year-old Felix Xaba dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father, but his mother Lindiwe thinks jazz is the devil’s music.

When Felix leaves his township friends 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.

‘FELIX!’ is the first South African film written, directed, shot and line produced by women since Elaine Proctor’s Kin 12 years ago.

‘Felix!’ is a new South African family feature film with an all-star cast, including Joburg-born Oscar-nominee Dame Janet Suzman ((Nicholas and Alexandra, Nuns on the Run, Labyrinthe) in her first South African film; South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) Best Actress winner Linda Sokhulu (Isidingo, Generations, Sokhulu & Partners) in her feature debut; and newcomer Hlayani Mabasa, who was cast in the title role from over 400 auditions across the country.

Natalie Haarhoff, who shot the Emmy-nominated Orphans of Nkandla and the BAFTA-nominated Lost Girls of South Africa, is the director of photography, while Kate Schalk is line producing her debut feature film. Felix! is a Penguin Films production for Sabido Productions.
