Media briefing on Hear Me MoveMEDIA INVITE

Attention: News Editors, Journalists

The Minister of Arts and Culture, Mr Nathi Mthethwa, invites members of the media to a press briefing about the release of the movie, Hear Me Move. The movie is the first dance film on the African continent.

Hear Me Move is a movie that employs dance as a form of self-expression and captures the vibrancy and rhythms of urban youth culture. This is a production by the youth for the youth. It stars a combination of upcoming and seasoned South African actors including Thembi Seete, Nyaniso Dzedze and Boity Thulo, among others. The sound track of the film is 100% South African.

The movie is shot in local languages and captures the lingo of urban South African youth. "The use of indigenous languages and township patois in the film imbues the flavour of popular culture and contributes towards the promotion and preservation of our languages," said Minister Mthethwa.

Hear Me Move has already been premiered to critical acclaim at prestigious international festivals such as Toronto in Canada, Cannes in France, as well as in the United Kingdom. This occasion is also held as a farewell to the production team, which will be leaving for the United States of America, where they will participate at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.

The dates for the South African premiere and release of the movie will be announced by Minister Mthethwa during the media briefing.
