The documentary will explore how Elvis was inspired by in black and white gospel music of Tupelo, Mississippi, and his early experience with African-American blues and r’n’b of
Memphis. It will also track his evolution as an artist with Sun Studios producer Sam Phillips. When Elvis joined the army, most people thought rock and roll lost a voice, but Elvis
Presley: The Searcher proves he didn’t stop learning his trade while serving in Germany.

seen.

To reveal the man and the artist “who wanted to heal, to find that thing that was always felt to be missing, and to do it through the music.” Elvis Presley: The Searcher offers
unprecedented access to Elvis, featuring new interviews with his collaborators, artists inspired by him (Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris) and never-before-seen
photos and footage of Presley at work and at play.

The result is an intimate look at a performer countless audiences around the world have heard but only few have truly known.
