Monsieur Contraste, is a full feature documentary film by award-winning filmmaker Rodrigo Dorfman. See trailer. It is an intimate portrait of an artist who struggles with the demons of marketing, unfolds as Jean Christian Rostagni’s wife gives him one year to make some good money or face the prospect of bagging groceries at Whole Foods. Jean Christian, aka. Monsieur Contraste, sets up a home-grown art gallery in his house that he calls the "Church of Photography" and the rest is a really fun and provocative documentary about art, commercialism and the price an artist has to pay to remain true to his vision. See Director's statement.

The Monsieur Contraste and his Church of Photography exhibit will give you the rare opportunity to experience a documentary in the same space as the photography exhibit of the works featured in the film. From the screen to the stage, in the blink of an eye, Monsieur Contraste will come alive before your eyes and take you on a tour of his Church of Photography. Part film screening, part art opening, Monsieur Contraste and his Church of Photography is a multi-dimensional art experience you will not soon forget.
