A Feature Film Centering On The “Jerusalema” Dance Craze Is Set To Premiere

Published

on

Shot over two days on a custom-built set at Cape Town Film Studios, hundreds of South African actors and crew members will, on Thursday, unite to make a two-element; a scripted narrative and a mass dance sequence feature film centering on the “Jerusalema” dance craze that has swept the world, according to reports by Variety.

The film, directed by Calvin Hayward alongside Abongwe L.Booi, and produced by Cheryl Eatock and James Muringani, coincides with Heritage Day, which celebrates the Rainbow Nation’s multiple cultures. In the mass dance sequence, performers will dance to “Jerusalema,” the upbeat gospel-inspired song, which features the voice of singer Nomcebo Zikode and was produced by Master KG.

The project has received product and facilities sponsorship from Cape Town Film Studios, Media Film Service, The Refinery, Panavision, Film Afrika Fresh Unit Logistics, Steers, Debonairs Pizza, Fleet Star, Sterling Logistics, Bluewater, and CCPP Equipment Rental, as well as the support of local government in Cape Town and regional org Wesgro.

The official video of “Jerusalema” has pulled in more than 160 million views on social media since its premiere on YouTube in December. It has sparked a global viral dance challenge that started in Angola when a group of friends recorded a video of the dance choreography. Enthusiasts around the world – from frontline health workers in a Sweden hospital to priests in Italy – have shared posts of their versions of the dance. Early this month, “Jerusalema” became the world’s most Shazamed song.

South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa, gave the dance challenge his backing during a televised COVID-19 update last week. He encouraged all South Africans to perform the dance challenge on Heritage Day.

He said “Jerusalema” was “a song I love so much,” adding: “I urge you to take up this challenge and show the world what we are capable of.” He said it symbolized what South Africa had managed to achieve combating the pandemic.
