King of Roads is the story of the Historic Columbia River Highway (HCRH), from its beginnings to the present. The story begins with a gang of dreamers lead by Sam Hill, builder of roads, monuments and what is now Maryhill Museum. Actors portray Hill and road engineer Sam Lancaster. These are men who lived large lives and built and spoke poetically. Scenic was a word used to describe the HCRH from the beginning and King of Roads creates a look and narration that elicits that original and on-going “scenic” vision by looking at Oregon's Columbia River Gorge as a work of art as seen through the eyes of artists, historians and Gorge residents. King of Roads is an on-going celebration of recollection and inspiration.

Join Directors Michael Friend and John Hardham for a screening and discussion about the making of the film.
