La bouche
2017 | France | Camilo Restrepo | ★★★★★

Camilo Restrepo's La Bouche is a formally stimulating, thematically challenging short film, comprised of tragic yet exhilarating, percussion-heavy Susu-language musical numbers, performed with great verve and intensity by Guinean drummer Mohamed Bangoura and friends.


"A man learns his daughter has been brutally murdered by her husband. Time stands still as he oscillates between the need for solace and his urge for revenge. A musical featuring Guinean percussion master, Mohamed Bangoura ('Red Devil'), loosely based on his own story." Festival de Cannes
