MIAF’s special guest, Rosto, presents this three film
adaptation of his graphic novel “Mind My Gap”.
Welcome to an utterly unique, fearsome world overfuelled
with its own seering logic and rules. Welcome to a screen
experience of extraordinary visual style where truly awe-inspiring
CG animation brings to big-screen life a highly original
graphic novel. Welcome to the very unusual world of Rosto
AD – animator, graphic novelist, musician, artist
This trilogy has its genesis in the mid 1990’s when
characters and storylines began emerging during the process
of re-interpreting lyrics to original songs that Rosto’s
band, The Wreckers, were performing at the time. A multi-media
art project and graphic novel titled “Mind My Gap”
was the result and that, in turn, breathed a kind of valhalla
life into the first film of the trilogy in 1999.
This is a superbly visioned, multi layered and challenging
body of work flowing directly from the imagination of a
powerfully creative artist and masterful animator.
MIAF is delighted to have Rosto present this screening.
In person, Rosto is an engaging, impressive presence. His
views on the importance of art-in-life are lucid and uncompromising.
The Q&A that will follow when the lights go up will
be a memorable event in its own right.
