CHICAGO – Elvis is everywhere and the new documentary “THE KING” proves it. There can’t be a better Closing Night film at Chicago’s DOC 10 Film Festival – April 8th, 2018, at the Davis Theater in the Lincoln Square neighborhood – then this amazing document of Elvis and the American Dream, which was directed by Eugene Jarecki (“Why We Fight”). It’s a must see. For more information, ticket info, click here.
Director Eugene Jarecki has put together an incredibly creative look at the life and times of The King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Aron Presley. Part bio picture, part fan film and all about America, Jorecki borrowed Elvis’s Rolls Royce and put celeb admirers like Alec Baldwin, Ethan Hawke, Ashton Kutcher, Emily Lou Harris and John Hiatt inside the car to pontificate on the significance of the Elvis celebrity, bigger and brighter at its time than any other. The film is simply a truth about who and what America is, through one of the biggest personalities it ever produced, for better or worse.
The Chicago Media Project is the presenter of DOC 10 at the Davis Theater, 4614 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago. For more information about the festival, click here.
