The King Is Alive Film Poster


The fourth film to receive Dogme certification, 'The King is Alive' tells of a group of travellers who are stranded in an African desert when their bus runs out of petrol. After a few days pass, ex-actor Henry (David Bradley) suggests they all occupy their time by staging a performance of 'King Lear'. The others agree, but as the rehersals develop so do the tensions between the performers.
