Camilo Restrepo: La Bouche
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.
I had the idea for this film after meeting Mohamed Bangoura and his son, Ella. Through mutual friends, Mohamed asked me to film a concert in Paris organised in homage to his daughter who had been killed in a case of domestic violence two years earlier.
The concert was neither a show nor a ceremony, but Mohamed Bangoura’s music, along with that of members of his family who were performers, established that evening a link between the living and the deceased young woman.
The film is entirely sung and spoken in Soussou, one of the languages spoken in Guinea where the Bangoura family comes from. Traditional West African Djembe drums accompany the songs.
More than simply exploring the family tragedy, the film, inspired by Mohamed Bangoura’s experience, questions our relationship with death and justice.
