Night of the Kings / La Nuit des rois

 

Spectacular, thrilling, and a beautiful ode to the power of storytelling – a young man sent to a prison in the middle of the Ivorian forest finds it ruled by its inmates, with the elderly, ailing Black Beard at its head. The new arrival is chosen to recount a tale which must last until after the Red Moon sets if he is to have any chance of survival.
