Plot Synopsis

Based on an unlikely true story, KIM KONG is a three-episode scripted series that centers on Mathieu Stannis, a bitter and frustrated director who, while shooting a mindless action flick in Asia, is abducted by spies from a neighboring country. Enraged by his country's abysmal movie production industry, the despot wants the French filmmaker to helm a new adaptation of classic monster movie KING KONG that will glorify his regime. Faced with an inept crew, equipment that dates from the Cold War and the crazy demands of the dictator, Mathieu's life now depends on the success of the film. Finding the hidden talents in his team of technicians, and drawing inspiration from a talented young actress, the director dives wholeheartedly into creating the best version of KING KONG he can. Finally, after an on-set tragedy, Mathieu plots his escape, but not before finishing the film. KIM KONG had its U.S. premiere on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as SundanceNow released all three episodes.
