A charming ‘ethnographic fantasy’ about three young men from the Niger Savannah seeking work and experience in Ghana’s cities for a season. Improvised on-screen action and narrative voiceover after the event give the film a remarkable zest and spontaneity, helped quite considerably by the positive encounters the three enjoy. They are the Jaguars of the title, now sharp men with knowledge of the urban who here return to share their profits. In the desperate present moment, this seems to stand as a gesture of huge hope, faith even.
