Rey Negro (Black King)

The indigent king.

Rey negro (Black King) is based on a true story that took place in 1995: the exile of King Kigali V of Rwanda to avoid his assassination, and his following bitter adventures in Western society.

Kigali, dethroned and thrown into poverty, does not stop behaving with the dignity that corresponds to a king. Together with him is Boniface, his faithful secretary that keeps being at his service. This contradiction between the majestic past and the wretched present offers a permanent game of ironies, puns and subtle humor.

Kigali, guided by a solid Christian morality, does not hate those who hate him, nor has any resentment. There’s no weakness in his spirit. His violent ending reminds of the death of Jesus Christ after Judas’ betrayal (Boniface).
