"Almost There" screens at Gene Siskel Film Center

In 2014, we brought you the story of Peter Anton, an “outsider” artist at a crossroads. His art had gotten attention at various exhibitions in and around Chicago. But that attention led to changes in his home life. Anton was forced to leave his decrepit childhood home that served as both inspiration and studio. Filmmakers Aaron Wickenden and Dan Rybicky documented Anton’s transition to a new home, and found themselves a part of the story along the way. It’s called Almost There, and we talked with Dan Rybicky when they did a screening in Northwest Indiana. Now, it’s playing at the Gene Siskel Film center through this Thursday. We re-visit that interview.
