Abstract:

In the 16th century, a man called Nyikang conquered a narrow strip of land along the Nile River. According to local history, he united the various groups living there into one people, who became known as the Shilluk. While their territory is now part of modern Sudan, the Nyikang dynasty still rules from the royal capital of Pacodo. This 1975 film documents the thousand-mile journey along the Nile Valley that transpired when the 32nd king of the Shilluk died, involving two months of rites, mock battles, and celebrations that make up the coronation of the new king, or "reth," around whom Shilluk life revolves. Although downgraded by the central government to the level of local magistrate, the reth is still the divine incarnation of the identity of the Shilluk people.
