Born in 1969 in the Nederlands, Rosto was an artist, director, illustrator, composer, musician who marked the world of cinema through graphic richness, sound and visual of his short films. He left us on 7 mars 2019 at the age of 50 years of illness.
From his first film Beheaded (1999) at his last Reruns (2018), each of his films is an initiatory journey between the real and the imaginary, always in a rock atmosphere both languid and cataclysmic.
Rosto got attached, throughout his career, to put in pictures his dream worlds, with various graphic and cinematographic techniques and in perpetual renewal : 2D and 3D animation, real shots, puppets ...
Hybrid, confusing, multidimensional ... these are the adjectives that characterize this total and sprawling work.
He concludes in 2018 his musical tetralogy Thee Wreckers Tetralogy made of No Place Like Home, Lonely Bones, Splintertime and Reruns (awarded in Annecy, Clermont-Ferrand, Ottawa, Anima), complétée par le documentaire Everything’s different but nothing has changed.
