– Rimini (a film by Ulrich Seidl)

Rimini is the location and the title of Ulrich Seidl’s latest movie. As its protagonist Richi Bravo (Michael Thomas), the town itself has seen better days, but it still stands for something: having a good time and molto amore.
When Seidl asked me if I wanted to roam around his set in Italy I was stoked. His movies Hundstage and ImportExport were a heavy inspiration for my way to look at the world, and his and Wolfgang Thaler’s cinematography certainly had a fair share of shaping my view as well. How to make a film with Seidl is an experience I will never forget.
