SALOUM Clip: This Crime-Horror-Fantasy-Western Should be on you Radar

By John Connor [09.20.21]


A trio of mercenaries find themselves navigating a mysterious region of Senegal in Jean-Luc Herbulot’s dynamic genre-blending second feature.

The second feature by Congolese filmmaker Jean Luc Herbulot packs plenty of mystery and excitement 2003, when three mercenaries extracting a druglord out of Guinea-Bissau are forced to hide in the mystical region of Saloum, Senegal.

As with Herbulot’s Netflix series SAKHO & MANGANE, which stylishly wove a supernatural thread through a gripping police procedural, SALOUM’s own twisting trajectory compellingly invokes diasporic African-Caribbean folklore and mysticism.

The results are infectiously cool and exciting.
