TURNING MAN – 81RPM – DER DREHER – 81RPM
Robin Trouillet | Germany 2021 | 14 Min. | OmeU
Jürgen Leppert, also known as “der Dreher” or “der Kreisel” because he moves in circles on various dance floors as if in a trance, is a graduate engineer, inventor of a loudspeaker, gifted Frisbee player and full-blooded 68er. Everything revolves around the Karlsruhe legend, and not just on the dance floor.
TURNING MAN – 81RPM is a declaration of love to music, dancing and rebellion, which despite all its lightness also reveals Leppert’s profundity. At the same time the film is a portrait of a tough person who still swims against the stream and provides living proof that 81 years is far from too old for hard raves.
