White Boy from the East
Directed by Istvan Kantor
In the autobiographical manifesto/mash-up music video White Boy from the East, Kantor challenges concepts of origins as he makes controversial claims to the Asian roots of Hungarian people in an outrageously humorous musical performance.
Istvan Kantor (a.k.a. Monty Cantsin) was born in Budapest and is currently based in Toronto. He is well known for his intellectually rebellious, anti-authoritarian, action-based art practice in performance, robotics, mixed media, sound and installation. Kantor received the Governor General's Award for Visual and Media Arts in 2004.
