As part of their nationwide season Who We Are, film exhibition company We Are Parable team up with HOME to present a special screening of Night of The Kings. The screening on Sat 24 Jul at 18:15 will feature a live and musical spoken word performance that focuses on the beauty and importance of storytelling in Black culture.
Who We Are is supported by the British Film Institute and The National Lottery.
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. An exhilarating tale of survival and a beautiful ode to the power of storytelling.
