WHAT IS THIS???
The Neoist Pied Piper uses his megaphone while wading ankle deep in cold water, fighting the 2PM plain and the mannequin riding on his back. This part is performed by Istvan Kantor, known also as Monty Cantsin, winner of the 2004 Canadian Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts and founder of the world-wide art movement known as NEOISM. "Welcome to the headlights of an absurdist kabuki opera film narrative! a tin-foil road-trip to Florida & the British Museum, with plagiarized Chinese text that dialogues over the electric kettle of Toronto's City Hall and rotates in perpetual stillness towards a tsunami of concrete boat performances by Canadian artists!!!"
"COLD IRON IS A TITANIC COMEDY" (The Neoist Beach Edit...)
(IRRATIONAL CINEMA, Canadian, 74 minutes, 2014, HD ) Written & directed by absurdist poet, musician, & sometimes painter, sculptor, Wesley Rickert. Starring Istvan Kantor, (aka, Monty Cantsin). Original score by BURNING ICEBERG. Are you ready to dive head first into “NEOISM”??? ... Do you have what it takes to join the contemporary art movement that has every clock striking six o’clock??? Are you interested in beauty??? Are you interested in love??? This underground art-film by artists for artists contains more love and beauty than 1000 mannequins could imagine over the course of the next 10,000 years. Does your life acknowledge the unknown? There is plenty of sacred Chinese text here used without sub-titles. Have you been thinking about philosophy?, experiments in fiction? and the meaning of life??? If this sounds like your fate, jump into your leakiest life-boat and splash through more absurdist verse, philosophies and general chaos than can possibly float any feather!
