Rosto returns with ‘Reruns’

// Featured, News


The highly prolific and acclaimed Dutch animator/multimedia storyteller Rosto. has today released the trailer for his latest film Reruns. A co-production between Studio Rosto, Autour de Minuit and A Private View, the film will serve as the concluding chapter in his Thee Wreckers tetralogy following No Place Like Home, Lonely Bones and Splintertime

With musical origins that date back to the early nineties, the series of musical animated shorts that centre on metaphysical band Thee Wreckers branch off from Rosto’s interactive graphic novel project Mind My Gap that originally began in 1998 and has since spawned a number of multi-award-winning animated shorts, including (the rise an fall of the legendary) Anglobilly Feverson and The Monster of Nix,. The first screening of the complete Thee Wreckers tetralogy including the world premiere of Reruns will take place at this year’s edition of the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.

Rosto (and companions)

Thee Wreckers Tetralogy consists of four short films by Rosto, each based on a song by Thee Wreckers, formely a Rock n’ Roll band, currently transformed into Rosto’s music project. The members of the group appear, in one way to another, in all of the films which follow up like a dreamlike series.
These four musical short films are compiled like a Rock’n’Roll Fantasia, in one 45 minutes program.
Thee Wreckers Tetralogy is accompanied by the behind-the-scenes documentary « Everything’s different, Nothing has changed » about the band, the music and the films.
