Documentary: The King and Dai + director Q&A
Robin Askew, May 1, 2017
Each year, Elvis impersonators from around the world flock to the sleepy Welsh seaside town of Porthcawl for Europe’s largest Elvis tribute festival. Who knew, right?
South Wales-based director David Barnes bagged the Best Welsh Film award at the Welsh International Documentary Festival for his study of this peculiar event, which begins as a jolly, light-hearted portrait but soon takes a left-turn into bitter fall-outs between former organisers, grapevine rumours and backstage chaos. Barnes and other crew members will be present for a Q&A after this Bristol premiere of what looks like a hugely entertaining film.
