Almost There


With co-director Dan Rybicky in person

Dirs. Aaron Wickenden, Dan Rybicky. 2014, 93 mins. Digital projection. For many, Peter Anton’s house embodies an end-of-life nightmare: the utility companies shut off the heat and electricity, the floorboards are rotting, and the detritus of a chaotic life is precariously stacked to the ceiling. But for the filmmakers Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden, Anton’s home is a treasure trove, a startling collection of unseen and fascinating paintings, drawings, and notebooks, not to mention the aging, infirm, and endearingly cranky Anton himself, a character worthy of his own reality TV show. The film’s remarkable journey follows the talented but troubled artist through startling twists and turns, providing enough human drama for a season of soap operas.
