THE KING OF MERRIMENT
Film / Maven
The King of Merriment is a snapshot of the unconditional love that people have for a place. It's a careful mash-up of 1950s Coney Island to the present day. The mash-up creates an interesting juxtaposition in celebrating Coney's rich history, while highlighting its beauty in the melancholy landscape of winter, that is made up of residents, die-hards, characters, dreamers, and pilgrims who are drawn to the sea regardless of season, and who form its unique community when the summer crowds dissipate. This is the inner beauty of Coney Island USA that many can now see, appreciate, and learn about.
