Inspired by the screenwriter’s real-life friendship with cult horror actor Udo Kier, dark comedy feature film Mimi & Ulrich tells the tale of Mimi, a lonely, self-destructive Goth, whose strange dreams lead her to Joshua Tree in her 1960s Cadillac Hearse.
There, in the vast, strange desert landscape, Mimi encounters her soul mate, Ulrich – an aging gay horror movie star nursing a broken heart. Aided by Frankie, Ulrich’s young punk assistant and on-off lover, Mimi and Ulrich embark upon a mission to write the greatest horror film of all time. When Victor Dutoit, the famous French director who broke Ulrich’s heart, unexpectedly shows up in the desert, it throws their grand plan – and Mimi’s last chance at redemption – into disarray.
Inspired by indie classics Harold and Maude and My Own Private Idaho, Mimi & Ulrich explores outsider friendship and ill-fated love against the awe-inspiring backdrop of the California desert.
Due to shoot 2020.
