…in pre-production… LIBERACE – THE FIRST AMERICAN IDOL
… in pre production…for ARTE DOCUMANIA
It was the era when swimming pools mostly served as glamorous settings for Hollywoodstars and where relaxed and good-looking people stood around holding cocktails. Palm Springs: Stronghold of a hedonistic life and party culture. It was also a place where America’s identity was shaped. Between Palm Springs, the glittering Hollywood and Las Vegas, the metropolis of artificiality, is where the life of „Władziu Valentino“ alias „LIBERACE“. The „KING OF BLING” forms the centre of this Documania. The myth of Palm Springs as it was and the lifestyle of it’s inhabitants today, allows the film to focus on the story from a „glittering “ perspective.
”Too much of a good thing is . . . wonderful.”
