La Nuit des Rois

Back to listing

In MACA, the famous Côte d'Ivoire prison, it is the prisoners who set the rules. Blackbeard, the ageing and ailing leader, is losing his grip on his fellow inmates. He chooses a young pickpocket to help him re-affirm his power. He designates the newcomer as "Roman", a status that traditionally requires him to tell a story until sunrise. This is not a simple prison drama; it is a political fable of Shakespearean beauty.
