Five Fingers for Marseilles — Red Band Trailer


added: Tue, Aug 28th '18

Check out the red band trailer for what has been called, "the world's first modern South African western."

Directed by first-time feature South African filmmaker Michael Matthews and written by South African writer Sean Drummond, "Five Fingers for Marseilles," described as a Spaghetti Western set in post-Apartheid South Africa, tells the story of the "five fingers," a group of young teenage bandits who fought to protect the rural South African town of Marseilles from white oppressors.

20 years later, notorious outlaw TAU (played by South African actor Vuyo Dabula), who was one of the original Five Fingers, has returned home to Marseilles. While seeking to build a new peaceful life as a retired gunman, TAU is put in a position where he must once again stand up against brutal oppression. But this time, he will have to save his town from the clutches of his former childhood friends, who have since come into power.

"Five Fingers for Marseilles," which premiered to rave reviews at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and has since screened at several notable film festivals, including London, Busan International, and Fantastic Fest, will be released in select U.S. theaters beginning September 7th.

Twenty years ago, the young "Five Fingers" fought against brutal police oppression for the safe-keeping of the rural town of Marseilles. Now, after fleeing in disgrace, freedom-fighter-turned-"outlaw" Tau returns to Marseilles, seeking only a peaceful pastoral life. When he finds the town under new threat, he must reluctantly fight to free it. Will the Five Fingers ride again?
