I have always been captivated by music and dance. I couldn't resist the urge to film on my phone in the dark warehouse above Roeland St in Cape Town. The pantsula artists had woven a whole sequence of comedy, sex, violence and gender roles with innovative movements that put the whole cypher into a hypnosis.
Now, another fresh young filmaker, Ziggy Hofmeyr, is raising funds to share a story with the world about dance, love and quest. Pop, Lock 'n Roll -- Indiegogo: http://igg.me/p/191398
If we support filmmakers, creactivists, dancers: Culture . . . then we will be preserving a tapestry of identity. Go on to IndieGogo and support the projects that speak to you. Or better yet, tell us when your next project is!
Watch the film African Cypher, and support South African films like Pop, Lock 'n Roll to be made.
