Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, Eugene Jarecki's new film takes the King's 1963 Rolls-Royce on a musical road trip across America.
From Memphis to New York, Las Vegas, and beyond, the journey traces the rise and fall of Elvis as a metaphor for the country he left behind. The election of Donald Trump as U.S. president could not provide a better example of what’s gone so terribly wrong south of the border, that a country once so full of promise decades ago in dealing with racial and economic inequality has simply failed to heed the lessons of history.
In this ground-breaking film, Jarecki (two-time Sundance Grand Jury winner) paints a visionary portrait of the state of the American Dream. A diverse cast of Americans, both famous and non, join the journey.
