Welcome to the cradle of dance-kind.
Hear Me Move Synopsis

Hear Me Move is South Africa’s first sbujwa dance movie. It tells the story of Muzi, a mild-mannered accounting student, who is also the son of a late famous township pantsula dancer. Muzi is at a crux in his life, as he simultaneously attempts to support his mother while trying to carry the mantle of his father’s legacy and finding out the truth about his life and tragic death. Balancing family, friendship, his own ambitions and a new love, Muzi embarks on a brave journey to becoming a man. But, in his path to self-recognition and acceptance, he finds himself embroiled in a bitter rivalry that will test him to his core. Hear Me Move is an energetic tour de force celebrating the power of sbujwa street dance and the complex journey of a young South African man coming into his own.

Scottness L Smith has brought us Step Up, South Africa. His first feature length dance film is bursting with so much energy, it explodes on screen. With elements of hip-hop blended in, for the very first time on the big screen we get to see these traditional South African dance styles, sbujwa and pantsula, which involve lots of tricky movements with the legs. Paul Modjadji's choreography is an absolute joy. Protagonist Muzi (Nyaniso Dzedaze) is such a likeable character that the film never tires as it revolves around his every move. Despite the aspect of knife violence in the film which reminds us of the darker, more troubled elements that still plague south African society, this film is the epitome of feel-good. complete with a winning romance and befriending of the antagonist at the end.
