[LISTEN] Local western movie Five Fingers for Marseilles hits cinemas

Five Fingers for Marseilles is a modern day and South African take on the classic western genre.

The movie is set in rural Eastern Cape where life revolves around violence, desperation, and the search for justice and survival of the Old West.

Marseilles is the town in which the intricate, well-told story plays out and the Five Fingers refer to five characters who play a crucial role in the town.

Writer and producer of Five Fingers for Marseilles Sean Drummond says that he's a really big fan of the old Western genre.

We started as a creative collective and we’ve all worked together for 15 years says Drummond.

The starting point for the collaboration was wanting to see grand genre films playing out in South African screens, telling South African stories.

Drummond says that movie genres are a great way to explore real themes in a way that the audience can relate to.

We immersed ourselves in Westerns for years while we were working on the project.
