The King is Alive
Dir. Kristian Levring
2001, 109 min
With Miles Anderson, Romane Bohringer, and Jennifer Jason Leigh

The fourth official film to become a part of the Dogme 95 movement, and first to be directed by a woman, The King is Alive restages Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear in the Namibian desert of Africa. Following a group of tourists who become stranded in the desert after their bus loses its way and runs out of fuel, The King is Alive follows the attempts of one of the group, a theatrical manager, who persuades the group to stage the Bard's play of a King's decent into madness. Examining the concept of life imitating art, in this case theater and film, The King is Alive considers how the line between fiction and reality is increasingly blurred in today's society.
