520    The Choir, an AFI-nominated documentary begins ominously. 
       As the film's narrator, 19-year-old prison inmate Jabulani
       Shabangu says: "This place is not about rehabilitation. 
       This place is about survival. If you are soft, you will 
       become another man's wife." Jabulani has been sent to 
       Leeuwkop Prison, South Africa's largest jail, for robbery 
       and assault. Shot over the following six years, Zimbabwean
       -born Australian director Michael Davie follows the 
       fortunes of Jabulani and a group of fellow inmates who are
       battling to survive in Leeukwop Prison -- South Africa's 
       largest prison. Jabulani is rebellious and angry until he 
       meets a wily old bank robber named Coleman, who recruits 
       him for the prison choir. Jabulani rises in the ranks and 
       leads the choir to victory at the National Prisoner Choir 
       Competition. But there's more going on here than just a 
       contest to see who sings best. The brotherhood of 
       choristers, along with Coleman's fatherly wisdom transform
       Jabulani's life and give him the tools he needs to face 
       his victims and to survive behind bars, as well as in the 
       world outside when he is released.
