Bright Blue Gorilla concert and Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee screening!


Bright Blue Gorilla Concert, followed by Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee screening. Q&A after with Director, Writer, Producer and Actors.

Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee synopsis:
Emmy winner Christiane Paul joins Francesco Mazzini and a strong ensemble cast in Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee. Mr. Rudolpho is an Italian fashion designer: Rich, famous, and depressed. Surrounded by luxury, monitored 24/7 by a security team, hated by the CEO of Rudolpho Inc., he’s a prisoner of success. Rudolpho’s been sketching something in his Moleskine 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. Rudolpho heads to Berlin for Fashion Week to end it all, with the killers not far behind. But, this being a Bright Blue Gorilla film, things don’t always go as planned... He’s 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... MRJ is a surreal comedy romance, told by two “Musical Angels”, aka Bright Blue Gorilla (Director Michael Glover and Producer Robyn Rosenkrantz) as the Greek Chorus. Part screwball comedy, part hippie musical, with a pinch of cop-show thrown in for flavor, Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee deliciously mixes up form and mashes up genre. Shot in Berlin and Italy, the film is in English, German, and Italian (with English subtitles - family friendly). 110 minutes.

About Bright Blue Gorilla:
Michael Glover and Robyn Rosenkrantz are Bright Blue Gorilla: Musicians & Filmmakers. After 6 feature films, a dozen CDs, and 27 years on the road, they have plenty of entertaining stories to share. Bright Blue Gorilla has 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 just returned to L.A. from a 3 month Europe tour, where they shot their 6th feature film Mr. Rudolpho’s Jubilee. It was made with 300 artists from 36 countries. A real international Labor of Love! Their music show is uplifting and lots of fun with beautiful melodies, humor, acoustic guitars, harmonium, tablas, and whatever interesting instruments they can get their gorilla hands on!
