pop1The team behind new dance film Pop, Lock ‘n Roll, producers Mayenzeke Baza and Pascal Schmitz, and director Ziggy Hofmeyr, hosted an intimate VIP Screening of the film at CineCentre Killarney on Wednesday night (21 September) ahead of the film’s release next Friday (29 September).

In attendance were stars of the film Maurice Paige, Yasirah Bhelz, Tarryn Alberts – who has been making waves overseas, and Just Robyn, who reunited with fellow cast members for the first time since completion of the film.

‘Pop Lock ’n Roll’, which brings some of South Africa’s hottest new dance moves to the big screen, is a film about finding the strength to dance again – despite life and its unexpected, and sometimes heart-breaking curveballs.

The cast is led by avid hip hop dancer and ‘Isidingo’ mainstay, Maurice Paige, and singer-songwriter and actress, Yasirah Bhelz. It features heart-stopping dance feats, accompanied by some of South Africa’s best produced hip hop and dance music.

‘Pop Lock ‘n Roll’ is releasing nationwide, and will be distributed by Indigenous Film Distribution.

“Dance films are a major hit with fans,” says Mayenzeke Baza, the producer and CEO of Mandela Bay Pictures. “Blending storytelling with great hip-hop and house moves, and a high-energy soundtrack, ‘Pop, Lock ‘n Roll’ speaks directly to the audience in a way that regular films are not able to. We are excited about because this film is so fresh and ‘now’, and we believe it’s set to be a favourite for many young South Africans.”
