Jon Jost, is a veteran film and video-maker, having made his first work in 1963 in Cassina Amata, Paderno Dugnano (Milano), Italy. Since then he’s worked continuously, making some 38 feature length works, more than thirty short films, several installations, along with painting, writing, and playing-composing music (C&W). While his films were screened regularly in major festivals and small ones too, they fail almost all criteria for the present day “market economy” value system, and are more or less not shown outside the festival circuit. In the last few years they seem also to not suit festivals, as the rejection list gets longer. He is regarded as one of the influential independent artists and the most dedicated in the United States. He also develop a web blog at https://jonjost.wordpress.com/.
