The Northwest Film Center and the Portland Art Museum present Night of the Kings. This film screens online through March 12, 2021.
Your ticket will directly support both NWFC and PAM and we encourage all of our members, staff, and supporters to join us—and spread the word.
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.
At a time when the bulk of cinemas are expected to remain shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic, our plan is to continue bringing new films to the PAM and NWFC audiences that allow us to follow social distancing rules.
We are proud to partner with NEON, the film production and distribution company that released Oscar winners such as Parasite and I, Tonya, on this innovative strategy to bring Night of The Kings to our audiences during COVID-19.
We are excited to offer this film at an affordable price because of the economic hardship that Americans are facing during the pandemic.

Can I share my NEON Digital Store account with a friend?
No. Your account is unique to you. A friend must create a new account and purchase a rental to watch on their devices. If a user shares their account, their account will be revoked and purchases will not be refunded.
