Ralfs Farben (Ralf's Colors)
Landscape and cinema form an amalgam here, being both interior spaces of thought and feeling and projected images of an outside.
Deserted landscapes have long been the primary subject in Marxt’s images. Shot in Lanzarote, his second feature might at first appear to cover familiar ground. The contrary is true: it deep dives into the inner life of a human protagonist, Ralf, who lives a quiet life busy with his thoughts. Oscillating between madness and genius, Ralf guides Marxt towards an alternate understanding of the world and a film language to convey it.Julian Ross
