Synopsis
The triangle has always been a fairly underrated instrument. It never reached higher than second fiddle or more precise: It just reached triangle. Then came a hero we didn’t know we deserve. A hero that single-handedly revolutionised the whole music industry – nay the world! A man responsible for what the triangled metal stick is today: rock’n’roll. But rock’n’roll changes you. The rise and fall of a triangle soloist. The Rise and Fall of Richie Myles.

Director’s biography
Linus Wirth was born and raised in Bremen (No he wasn’t. He was born and raised close to Bremen). His interest in filmmaking began very early when he watched Citizen Kane and understood everything with just four years (Yeah, sure. You watched SpongeBob like the rest of us). After his a-levels he spent a year in Canada and the United States on a work and travel (Ok bruh. Got it. You’ve been traveling). He then did several internships, mostly in theatre and started studying Cultural Research and Art-Media-Aesthetic Education (Ok ok. What even is Art-Media-Aesthetic Education?) Doing a theatre project at university (The Crucible) he met the people with whom he founded the collective arts group “Strassentauben Kollektiv” in 2019 (Is that even the correct use of whom?). “The Rise and Fall of Richie Myles” is his first picture exceeding half an hour (What an achievement…).
