About Scam République


This is, without a doubt, one of the most fearlessly bold African films ever made.  Viewers are transported to the heart of Africa into the urban decay of Yaounde, Cameroun.  Two friends, Niko & Kwesi begin a journey of self discovery as they navigate the twists and turns of an unkind world. SCAM REPUBLIQUE is stuffed with brutal realism, and insight into that age old question: What level of depravity will men venture for profit? Director Marco Matheus, has made a classic.   In SCAM REPUBLIQUE, you have a story birthed in the heart of Africa. The film blends thematic elements unique to the regions sensitivities.The Score of the film drives the action, the music is visceral and can be heard from the streets of Yaounde to the furthest corners of the African Continent. SCAM REPUBLIQUE is an open invitation to enter a world of beauty and culture unknown to western audiences.
