Join us as we host in collaboration with the African Diaspora International Film Festival, the Parallel Film Collective and Lesole’s Dance Project, the African Cypher. Part ethnographic, the film charts the journeys of several street-dance-crews in the townships of South Africa as they prepare for the Red Bull Beat Battle. What emerges from the different narrative strands is a complex and redemptive story of how urban youth from the country’s poorest neighborhoods are able to transcend the harshness of their circumstances through dance.
