By on


No votes yet

Edwin Rostron is one of the most interesting British experimental animators of the moment. His films work mainly with drawings, with non-predetermined animation processes that allow the unconscious and surprise to enter. His personal graphic style merges with imagery and found sounds, creating a unique and non-transferable universe. In this session we will see a representative selection of his personal work, from an initial piece made at the university to his most recent films. He will present the premiere of his latest film The Asphodel Phases (2019).

Edwin Rostron is also the person behind Edge of Frame, a blog and a program of projections focused on the world of the most experimental and interesting animation.
