Outsider artist Peter Anton, 82, has spent decades obsessively chronicling his rollercoaster of a life into a massive, illustrated autobiography, and nothing — not poverty, isolation, or crippling disabilities — will stop him from seeing it published. Almost There documents the curatorial complexities surrounding the discovery and stewardship of Anton's work, addressing issues of identity and legacy that arise from the collision of biography and autobiography. Join ITVS in congratulating the filmmakers!
