The King

Eugene Jarecki, Germany, US, 2017, 107'

Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, The King takes us on a musical road trip across America in his 1963 Rolls Royce. The mission is to find the country he left behind – a nation that, like Elvis, started out young, beautiful, and promising, yet succumbed over time to the corrosive influences of addiction, money, and power. The King paints a cultural portrait of the American dream at a critical time in the nation’s history.
