Robert Adanto was born in Los Angeles and is currently based in West Palm Beach. A classically-trained actor and documentary filmmaker, he earned his M.F.A. in Acting from New York University’s Graduate Acting Program. As a filmmaker, he is interested in exploring how artists respond to rapid, sometimes catastrophic change. His documentaries have looked at China’s meteoric march towards the future (The Rising Tide, 2008), the lives and works of Iranian female artists (Pearls on the Ocean Floor, 2010); the impact of Hurricane Katrina on the lives of New Orleans-based artists (City of Memory, 2014); and radical “4th wave” feminist performance in Brooklyn (The F Word, 2015). He is currently working on an animated non-fiction work with German producer Dirk Manthey. A fellow of the Sundance Institute Documentary Program, Robert’s films have enjoyed screenings at over 40 international film festivals and have been presented at the Smithsonian Institution’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., the National Center for Contemporary Art in Moscow, The MFA Boston, LACMA, The Hammer Museum, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and The National Museum of Australia in Canberra, amongst others.
