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 with a penetrating eye looks at how we got here. A diverse cast of Americans, both famous and ordinary, join the journey, including Alec Baldwin, Rosanne Cash, Chuck D, Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Van Jones, Mike Myers, and Dan Rather, among many others.
Eugene Jarecki is an American award-winning filmmaker. In 2012, he has won Sundance Grand Jury awards for documentary The House I Live In. The film was screened at 2013 ZagrebDox.

Jarecki’s film Why We Fight, winner of the 2005 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and a Peabody Award, has been broadcasted in over forty countries, including 2006 ZagrebDox.
