The film is South Africa’s first dance movie which celebrates Sbjuwa as an art form and captures the energy and passion of our youth with all its authenticity, unique style and vibe. The film epitomises urban youth culture with vibrant colours, urban music and heartfelt story of how one seeks to redefine oneself in our post-apartheid reality. The film features a host of recognisable faces as well as new acting talent. It captures the essence of local music and dance trends, and also documents the historic influences of Pantsula and Kwaito.
Fidel was also the winner of the 2013 Writer’ Guild of South Africa Award for the Best Comedy Writing and has more than ten years’ experience in the South African Film and Television industry. He has written12 feature length scripts, 9 of which have been produced. He is currently co-producing the Afrikaans feature film Verskietende Ster, directed by Darrel Roodt.
The KYKNET SILVERSKERMFEES is an annual film festival hosted by KYKNET, promoting South African writers and filmmakers and featuring a host of panel discussions. This year Namisi has been invited to serve on the panel at the festival held in Cape Town from 27 August to 31 August.
Namisi said, “I am honoured to have been invited by Kyknet to serve on a panel with such notable people as Anne Hirsch, Rethabile Ramaphakele and Francois Toerien. I’m looking forward to hearing their views and learning from them.”
The discussion points will include the comedy gap between theatre, TV and online comedy, comedy writing best practices, how to appeal to the younger generation and international comedy trends.
