How Are You Doing, Rudolf Ming?

Year
2010
Country
Latvia
Duration
62’
Director
Roberts Rubins

Rudolf is a 13 year-old boy obsessed with filmmaking. As a matter of fact, it’s the only thing he’s really fond of. His main interest is horror films, and he uses a special technique to make them – drawing each frame on long strips of paper. He shows the films on a slide projector with a special live soundtrack. Rudolf’s story illustrates the conflict between the imaginary world of a boy and the society surrounding him, where everybody expects him to live according to certain rules and dogmas. How does he cope with it? The biggest surprise comes when the local priest asks Rudolf to make a film to be played during a service.
