Acclaimed film Five Fingers for Marseilles, now available On Demand from Uncork'd Entertainment, emerged the biggest winner of 14th Africa Movie Academy Awards, taking home five awards including Best Film.
In addition, the film snared the AMAA 2018 Award for Achievement in Production Design, Michael Matthews won the AMAA 2018 Award for the Best First Feature Film by a director, the AMAA 2018 Award for Achievement in Cinematography, and the Ousmane Sembene AMAA 2018 Award for Best Film in an African Language.
The critically-acclaimed, action-packed South African western, written by Sean Drummond, received a theatrical release in North America this summer. It was released on VOD platforms this week.
Five Fingers for Marseilles takes place in a small town "governed" by dubious local officials, living in fear of a lawless mob; when an exiled outlaw returns home in search of solace and redemption, brotherhood and loyalty are fused with vengeance.
