Love, Antosha (2019): Garret Price’s Documentary about Late Actor Anton Yelchin

From the Archives:

Garret Price directed Love, Antosha a documentary focusing on the life and career of actor Anton Yelchin.

World-premiering in the Documentary section at the 2019 Sundance Film Fest, the film was released by Lurker Productions in New York and Los Angeles in August 2019.

Jon Voight, Yelchin’s co-star from the 2015 short, “Court of Conscience,” suggested to Yelchin’s parents to make a documentary. They first reached out to Drake Doremus, who had directed Yelchin in Like Crazy, but Doremus was too close to Yelchin to direct, and he suggested Garret Price.

The film reveals Yelchin’s struggle with cystic fibrosis, which his parents told him about when he was 17. He hid it from friends, colleagues, and the public.

The film shows Yelchin’s passion for his artistic pursuits and close relationship with his parents.

Nicolas Cage is film’s narrator, reading Anton’s various writings.
