The feature film, Aluminium Tastes Like Fear, by Andre Bato and Henri Alexander Levy displays Bato’s abrasive directing style, saturated by a lo-fi handheld VHS camera culminating in an intimate yet, gritty portrait of the brazenly raucous painter and designer.

Here, the viewer has access to a picturesque portrayal of the subtle yet ingenious imbalance of the unconscious, brutal, and uncontrollable movements of Levy’s work. From intimate moments painting and walking through stark hallways in Los Angeles to the brand’s exclusive runway shows and exhibits at Christie’s Paris, Aluminum Tastes Like Fear illuminates the concealed but, brightly iridescent landscape of Levy’s life, submerging the viewer into an improvised juggle of high fashion and art. In a culture dominated by political correctness, Levy brazenly waves his flag as the only child of capitalist realism, apologizing for nothing and creating his art through an assemblage of mistakes.
