Award-winning choreographer Paul Modjadji and the production team behind South Africa's dance film Hear Me Move are heading to Los Angeles to premiere the film to global audiences at the Pan African Film Festival.

The film centers around a dancer named Muzi who has to make a choice between his dance dreams and the expectations his mother has for his life.

The film features newcomer Nyaniso Dzedze as the main character alongside stars Lilian Dube and S'thandiwe Kgoroge.

As head choreographer of the production, Modjadji feels overwhelmingly honoured and ecstatic about the film's international debut.

"This is a dream come true for all of us that grew up as storytellers. What's amazing is that we are taking our story to the world and we are telling it in our own way," gloats Modjadji.

The renowned  dancer is also proud about the film telling a distinctively South African story.

"We have been influenced by hip hop from America as well as the kwasa kwasa from Africa but now the world will be able to see that this story is South African because of dance," says Modjadji.

The film will hit the festival screens on the 6th and 9th of February.
