ANTERO ALLI started writing and directing underground feature films in 1993. His deep background in experimental theatre (since 1975) imprints his films with their distinct theatricality. His movies have been extensively reviewed at filmthreat.com and seen in limited runs on the west coast arthouse circuit and, on dvd. After twenty-two years of film production, he quit filmmaking to focus on the creation of intermedia physical theatre and "bird&wolf", his musical collaborations with his wife, Sylvi; he currently resides in Portland, Oregon.

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

Northwest Film Forum, Seattle WA (2013) 

"Alli's films are not for the easily distracted. They are challenging and
sometimes cryptic in their dissection of human emotions and societal
interactions. Repeated viewings, however, reveal layers of wisdom 
and wit that may not have been obvious in the initial screening."
Phil Hall -- Encyclopedia of Underground Movies
