NIGHT OF THE KINGS
Dir: Philippe Lacôte / Côte d’Ivoire, France, Canada, Senegal WC
Synopsis : 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.
