« Have You Seen the Listers? » is a poignant documentary about the life of the artist Anthony Lister, whom we had the privilege to host during a 3-week art residency in Berlin in September 2018.
Directed by Eddie Martin and using mainly the artist’s home video footage, « Have You Seen the Listers? » is a harrowing tale of the rise to artistic fame of the Brisbane-born artist, from the first happy family moments to a very unstable lifestyle, crises, drugs, and a crushing separation.
It is as much about parenthood and family life as making it as a great artist, moving from conservative Australia to NYC, challenging the codes of art, leaving his mark in galleries and on the street, being free, oblivious and focused, but being unable to maintain a normal family life, and enduring severe breakdowns.
The movie is now available on Netflix.
