Graceland (Christian Hödl | 11 min.)

In her small flat in Munich Angelica lives an Elvis Presley-centered life, far away from the world which she perceives as loud and bad sometimes. She spends from 600 to 700 Euros a month for Elvis fan stuff, but she only needs 20 Euros a week for food. Angelica lives in a very special way and at the same time she is very self-reflected. The film is the portrait of a middle-aged woman, who wants to live as she wants to: with Elvis Presley.
