The Rosto Tetralogy (2019)
Writer, graphic artist, musician, animator….. long-time inspirational friend of AIAF & MIAF.
Driven and with an audaciously broad panoramic artistic vision, Rosto remains one of the most powerful, gifted and interesting multi-discipline artists of our age. In fact, Rosto’s life and his art are inextricably comingled. He lived inside the creative zone in which he imagined his films and, in turn, his films drove the way he lived and how he imagined the zone he lived within. It’s a giant tumbling ball, simultaneously part controlled and part random supplier of inspirational kilowatts. Similarly, the music that he created with his band Thee Wreckers feeds into and draws from his animation.
His latest film, “Reruns” completes a four film ‘tetralogy’ and his Paris based production house, Autour de Minuit, has completed a documentary outlining this stunning achievement as well as laying down some of the history and inspiration behind this creative turbine.
AIAF Co-Director, Malcolm Turner, visited Rosto last year in his home city of Amsterdam and locked in a special screening of this collection of unique work. He will do his best to introduce the program before turning the audience over to the tender mercies of an artist who promises almost everything except compromise.
