Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee
Bright Blue Gorilla: Filmmakers & Musicians from Los Angeles, will be touring Australia for the very first time in Feb/March/April 2018, including a concert and screening of Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee at Mount Vic Flicks.

Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee is the 6th feature film from the independent movie & music team, Bright Blue Gorilla (writer/director Michael Glover and producer Robyn Rosenkrantz). It’s a surreal comedy romance, told by two “Musical Angels”, aka Bright Blue Gorilla as the Greek Chorus. Part screwball comedy, part Bohemian musical, with a pinch of cop-show thrown in for flavour, Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee deliciously mixes up form and mashes up genre.

Mr. Rudolpho is an Italian fashion designer. Rich, famous, and depressed. Surrounded by the luxury of his Tuscan villa, monitored 24/7 by a security team and reviled by the CEO of Rudolpho Inc., he’s become a prisoner of success. Rudolpho’s been sketching something in his moleskin book for months, but nobody knows what it is. Turns out he’s making plans for suicide. Good timing, because the CEO is planning to bump him off. (Dead icons are profitable, just ask Chanel or Gucci.) Rudolpho heads to Berlin for Fashion Week to do himself in, with the killers not far behind. But, this being a Bright Blue Gorilla film, things don’t always go as planned...

Through a series of events he is thrown in with some off-the-grid artists - the Boheems - who have no idea who he is. Thinking he’s destitute, they invite him to stay. Meanwhile, cops, killers, reporters, and Interpol all search for him. Rudolpho, happy in his hide-out, is hanging with the Boheems - and maybe falling for one of them...

Christiane Paul, who stars in the film, won an International Emmy.  Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee is a romantic musical comedy and was shot in Berlin & Italy. 300 artists from 36 countries put their talent into making the film. Bright Blue Gorilla plays the Greek Chorus, so there’s tons of music in the film. The film is in German, Italian & English (with English subtitles).

Bright Blue Gorilla have been doing a cinema tour all around Europe, doing concerts and screenings. The sold-out world premiere was at Babylon in Berlin, and audiences are loving the film.

About Bright Blue Gorilla: 

After 6 feature films, a dozen CDs, and 28 years on the road, Bright Blue Gorilla has plenty of entertaining stories to share. Producer Robyn Rosenkrantz and Director Michael Glover have been charming audiences around the world since 1990 when they quit their L.A. jobs, sold everything they had (except their guitars) and bought one-way tickets to Europe. They’ve been travelling ever since and are still going strong!
