Night of the Kings (La nuit des rois) (Philippe Lacôte, 2020, 93 min, France/Côte d’Ivoire, French with English subtitles, Color, DCP)
When Roman (Koné Bakary) is incarcerated in Côte d’Ivoire’s largest prison, La MACA, he finds he must recount a story until the sun rises if he wants to keep his life and stop the prison from falling into chaos. Further incorporating song and dance (and a cameo by Denis Lavant), Night of the Kings is a mesmerizing meditation on the art of storytelling and its role in survival.
