click image for IMDb profile 

ANTERO ALLI started writing and directing underground feature films in 1995. His deep background in experimental theatre (since 1975) imprints his work with a distinct theatricality. His movies have been extensively reviewed at filmthreat.com and seen in limited runs on the west coast arthouse circuit. In 2015, he took a four year hiatus from filmmaking to develop, direct and produce five intermedia physical theatre works (documented on video) while creating a series of music videos with his wife, Sylvi. He plans to start making films again in 2020. Antero and Sylvi currently reside in Portland, Oregon.

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
