Screening: The Man Who Became King

Screening Sunday 23rd September, 2007

The Man Who Became King follows Adongo Agada, a Sudanese refugee living in Canada, who receives unexpected news that he has been designated the new king of the Anyuak tribe in Southern Sudan.

Great responsibility, danger and demigod status come with the position – as well as eight wives. But Adongo is a converted Christian who hopes to bring his family to Canada. If he refuses, the Anyuaks will be thrown into anarchy.

An extraordinary story of a man torn by tribal obligation and family loyalty.
