The upcoming documentary feature, “The Clip – All My Love, Beyoncé,” follows Pantsula dancers Mario Buce and Xavier Campione (they perform as WTOFO) who were hired to perform at a wedding in
Mozambique, having absolutely no idea that their performance would turn up on YouTube where Beyoncé would watch them, and eventually arrange to have them come to Los Angeles, where they would teach her their moves, and would eventually show up in one of her videos, performing those moves.
They appeared in maybe one of the most talked about dance sequences in the video for Beyoncé’s single, “Run the World (Girls),” from her 4th studio album, “4,” released in 2011, and have also performed on stage with her while on tour.
Directed by Swedish filmmaker, Victor Nordenskiöld, “The Clip” is currently in post-production, and has been picked up by Sweden’s national broadcaster, SVT, adding the film to its line-up of documentary offerings with international appeal.
The project hails from Freetown Films, and is produced by Andreas Magnell, in co-production with SVT, and with the support of the Swedish Film Institute (SFI).
Given the subject matter, I’m sure the film will be picked up by an American distribution company, or a broadcaster like HBO or Showtime.
No trailer yet. But it’s a project I’ll be watching out for as progress is made.
In the meantime, here’s the video for “Run the World” in which they feature:
