South Australian Premiere
Portrait of the artist as a flawed man.
The professional highs and personal lows of Australian artist Anthony Lister are chronicled in a remarkably candid documentary by Eddie Martin (All This Mayhem). Narrating his story and serving as his own harshest critic, Lister recalls a childhood in bland 80’s and ‘90s Brisbane that led to his emergence as Australia’s preeminent street artist. Worldwide recognition followed for the married father of three, but so too did a battle with drugs and the devastating break-up of his marriage. This is raw and compelling stuff.
