Film Screening: The Dancing Outlaw

  • GHCL Annex 7306 Southwest Oleson Road Portland, OR, 97223 United States (map)

In celebration of Elvis' birthday we're screening the cult classic documentary, The Dancing Outlaw. Join us for this unflinching film about Jesco White: mountain dancer, petty criminal, Elvis Presley aficionado. The Dancing Outlaw is, in turn, frightening, tragic, and hilarious. 

"This unscripted, strikingly unique documentary film is a revealing portrait of Mountain Dancer Jesco White's uphill battle against abject poverty, drug abuse, petty crime, and mental instability. In his struggle to live up to his father's legacy as the finest mountain dancer in Appalachia, he leans on Jesus, Elvis Presley, and his wife, Norma Jean."
