The Seven Ages of Elvis


1 x 90’

Director David Upshal’s highly acclaimed and ratings winning film for Sky Arts digs deeper than any assessment of Elvis ever has before; revealing not only the real evolution of modern pop music but also reflecting Elvis’ world and ours too.

Elvis was the ultimate “rise and fall” megastar – he defined the pitfalls of modern super-celebrity. His childhood immersed in “trash white” poverty exposed him to black cultural influences that created a curious and electric fusion of influences that shaped a new musical phenomenon. We discover why, Dead Elvis has become an even bigger phenomenon than he was in life, worth more annually than Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra and David Bowie combined. By dividing Elvis’s life into seven distinct phases, we marry his achievements to his times and his historical context.
