Program Note

Maca in Cote d′Ivoire is the largest prison in West Africa. A 17-year-old boy, imprisoned for pickpocketing, is summoned by Black Beard. Black Beard names the boy as ‘Roman’ and orders him to tell all the inmates any story overnight when the ‘red moon’ rises. The boy begins unraveling the story of King Jama to survive. Inspired by the childhood experience of visiting his mother imprisoned in Maca, the director faces post-war Cote d′Ivoire through Maca. The prison is reborn with an antique atmosphere and the red moon. The only white inmate, Denis Lavant, also adds mystique. (PARK Woe Young)
