BLOODSUCKERS – A MARXIST VAMPIRE COMEDY
BLUTSAUGER

Director: JULIAN RADLMAIER
GERMANY
2021, 125'

A penniless Soviet refugee dreams of making a career in Hollywood at the end of the 1920s. However, on the way there, he falls in love with a young and wealthy female vampire who is spending the summer on the Baltic coast with her clumsy assistant – with unforeseen consequences.

Julian Radlmaier born in Nuremberg, Germany in 1984, he studied film and history of art in Berlin and Paris before taking a degree in directing at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB). He has worked as an assistant for Werner Schroeter and translated and published a series of film criticism texts by French philosopher Jacques Rancière. His DFFB graduation film, «Selbstkritik eines bürgerlichen Hundes», was selected for the 2017 Perspektive Deutsches Kino and went on to screen and win several awards at festivals around the world.
