Cinema Release: "Rudolf Thome – Flowers Everywhere"

RUDOLF THOME – ÜBERALL BLUMEN (RUDOLF THOME _ FLOWERS EVERYWHERE) by Serpil Turhan is being released by peripher Film on September 15. The film, which screened as special in this year's Forum programme, is a portrait "brimming with warmth, humour, and wit." (Birgit Kohler) "Rudolf Thome's idiosyncratic oeuvre was created with a continuity rare in German cinema – he has directed 28 feature-length films over more than four decades since 1968. The writing of the script for film no. 29 and the parallel efforts to secure financing form the thread that runs through this cinematic portrait, which consists wholly of conversations and observations around Thome’s home, a converted farm in Brandenburg. The filmmaker is nothing if not forthcoming, and the viewer has the opportunity to experience him in various other roles: as a gardener, a father, a cyclist, and a performer of his own persona." Accompanying the relase, the fsk cinema in Berlin is showing three early works by Thome: "Detektive" (Germany 1968, 89'), "Rote Sonne" (Germany 1970, 90') and "Berlin Chamissoplatz" (Germany 1980, 112').
