video/filmography (since 1991)

 


(click image for IMDb profile) 

ANTERO ALLI  is a Berkeley-based filmmaker whose deep background in experimental theatre (since 1972) imprints his underground films with their surreal story-telling sensibility. Since 1995, his films have garnered critical praise for their searing social insights and depth of imagination. They screen in rare one-night stands in west coast arthouses and are available on dvd. He is the founder/director of ParaTheatrical ReSearch  (since 1977), a center for paratheatre group dynamics in Berkeley CA where he resides with his wife, singer/composer Sylvi Alli. Alli is also a book author.

vision statement
I don't call myself an artist. Best to let others, the world, decide what to call you.
