Filmmaker To Know: Mike Rollo

Mike Rollo is a Montreal-based experimental documentary filmmaker who specializes in making films that deal with issues of geography and identity. For example, his award-winning Ghosts and Gravel Roads features photographs placed in and around abandoned homes out in the middle of nowhere. Viewers are left trying to determine what relation, if any, there is between the people in the photos and the locations.

Rollo is also a founding member of the Double Negative Collective, a group of Montreal artists who both produce and curate experimental media shows. Plus, he teaches film production at Concordia University.
