There aren’t many documentaries that see Elvis Presley as the bruised soul of America through fun times and bum times. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, two-time Sundance Grand Jury winner 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. In this groundbreaking film, Jarecki paints a visionary portrait of the state of the American Dream and a penetrating look at how the hell we got here. A diverse cast of Americans, both famous and non, join the journey.
Rick Torres, Elvis Entertainer of the year, will be making a special appearance at PROXY in his pink Cadillac and will be performing classic and iconic Elvis hits before the show!
Presented by HERE FOR NOW, the FREE, Friday evening film screenings begin at dusk with ‘doors’ opening at 6:00 pm.
