The Prince of Pennsylvania

D: Jesse Vile | USA | 50 min | World Premiere

With exclusive access to new witnesses and never-before-seen footage, The Prince of Pennsylvania is the story of a paradise lost to the madness of its creator, a man who had the means to buy anything except for the one thing he truly wanted.
