Jaguar is a road movie: the Gold Coast is the destination. Damouré, Illo and Lam walk, and the promise of work and better remuneration is the driving force behind this movement. These young Nigerians are our companions on this journey, where the most diverse landscapes enchant - from the desert to the beach, from the fields to the markets of the city - where spirituality is exalted and cultural diversity fascinates. The voices and discourses arise from the later reunion of these characters, who freely recreate, evaluate and comment on the images they observe of the recording of this moment of their lives. A temporal distance from (fictional and) experienced reality, which allows an analysis of the represented social reality: a path and a struggle for the generalized reach of the character of the Jaguar. (Teresa Vieira)
