NIGHT OF THE KINGS
(LA NUIT DES ROIS)
2020, Neon, 93 min, France/Côte d’Ivoire, Dir: Philippe Lacôte

A young man is sent to “La Maca,” a prison in the middle of the Ivorian forest ruled by its inmates. As tradition goes with the rising of the red moon, he is designated by the Boss to be the new “Roman” and must tell a story to the other prisoners. Learning what fate awaits him, he begins to narrate the mystical life of the legendary outlaw named “Zama King” and has no choice but to make his story last until dawn.

In French and Dyula with English subtitles.
