Biography

Ossie von Richthofen was born 1955 in Germany and raised in Djidda, Khartum, and Singapore. He started his film career at the University of Television and Film in Munich in 1977, where he met fellow student Roland Emmerich with whom he enlisted in the Directing program and shortly afterwards co-directed their first student film. Thirty years of collaboration and friendship continued in which Richthofen pursued a successful career in advertising and music videos. He headed up one of Europe’s leading production companies, personally producing hundreds of premium commercials.

In 2004 he teamed up again with Emmerich and co-produced "10,000 B.C." and "Trade". Having travelled and worked together in Africa over the years, Richthofen and Emmerich became avid collectors and keen appreciators of African art. With the trilogy "35 Cows and a Kalashnikov", which had its world premiere at DOK Fest Munich, Richthofen and Emmerich strove to pay artistic tribute to a very special continent. Ossie von Richthofen died in August 2013.
