FIERCE EXPRESSION: the work of Tony Calzetta

Synopsis

This hour long documentary presents the fiercely original work of artist Tony Calzetta. Studio sequences with Calzetta painting and working with master printmaker Dieter Grund engage the viewer in the process of making art. In a series of candid interviews, Tony discusses how the struggle to be true to yourself in art and in life is at the core of his darky humourous aesthetic.

An original music score drives the lively visual mélange including animations of Tony's titillating titles, scores of paintings and drawings, insights from curators, art critics and fans, and archival photographs of the Bloor Street Diner project.

"This is the essence of Tony" - John Metcalf
