John Mikulak and Joshua von Brown's irreverent documentary traces the rise and fall of Grammy-nominated polka music superstar Jan Lewan, whose defection from Poland to Pennsylvania led to fame, fortune and an international Polka Empire. But when Lewan’s empire collapsed under a cloud of scandal, the polka world was stunned to learn of the greatest polka-related financial crime in history.
Coming soon! A feature film based on our documentary starring Jack Black, Jenny Slate and Jason Schwartzmann. The Polka King will premiere in January 2017 at the Sundance Film Festival.
