Directed by Philippe Lacôte 
Starring: Bakary Koné, Steve Tientcheu, Jean Cyrille Digbeu 

Spectacular, thrilling and absolutely unique, Night of the Kings is both an exhilarating tale of survival in one of the world’s most dangerous prisons and a beautiful ode to the power of storytelling. 

When a young man, Roman, is sent to an infamous prison, located in the middle of the Ivorian forest and ruled by its inmates, he is chosen to take part in a storytelling ritual just as a violent battle for control bubbles to the surface. After discovering the grim fate that awaits him at the end of the night, Roman begins to narrate the mystical life of a legendary outlaw to make his story last until dawn and give himself any chance of survival.
