an opera for television by Trystero

Words by David Kulma

Music by Dorian Wallace

Directed by John Sanborn


"The Rest !s Sh!t" embraces the anxiety and miasma of modern life and bring it to vibrant life through the mind of a master storyteller called The Fabulist. Under the thrall of a torrent of words set to music, and a hallucinogenic collage of images, we embark on a search for clarity in an age of noise, encountering characters whose stories mirror ours. 


The pilot for "The Rest !s Sh!t" premiered in March 2016 at Anthology Film Archives.
