KINOFEST – The Documentaries of Jeremy JP Fekete
$12 General Admission
Me-Udo… Starring Udo Kier (Jeremy JP Fekete, Germany, 2012, 43 min)
As a bloodthirsty vampire, an androgynous pretty boy and a psychopathic killer, Udo Kier’s face with its pale green eyes was stamped into the audience’s memory. He has become one of the few German actors who succeeded in Hollywood and became world famous. In contrast to his eccentric roles, Udo Kier lives with his two dogs in Palm Springs. The images of Kier’s daily life are like a Western, with endless desert landscapes, a dusty ghost town from the ’40s, and never-ending highways that comprise the backdrop of director Fekete’s documentary.
