The Original King of Rock ‘N’ Roll
In this highly anticipated feature-length documentary, the absolute instigator of Rock and Roll, Chuck Berry is truly revealed with exclusive access to his family, friends and music icons.
In and out of prison and dogged by bad decisions and widely speculative accusations for the scope of his lifetime, the entertainer was both revered and abhorred. He was a prolific craftsman of word and chords; an undisputed and stunning combination of talent and charisma and despite his iconic status, and reverence for his talent by rock’s heroes John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, Steve Van Zandt, Joe Perry, Alice Cooper (all featured in the film), Chuck was a family man.
Award-winning filmmaker Jon Brewer (BB King: The Life of Riley, Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark), lends new insight to the man known as the bedrock of Rock n Roll.
