Ernie Gehr, one of the pioneers of the structuralist film movement of the early ’70s, will be screening a selection of his more recent works from 1981 to 2008. Here’s how he describes his filmmaking process:

My approach, if I ever had one, is to try to be alive, responsive, and truthful to the moment and the materials at hand. Sometimes the sensual/kinetic character and potentials of the medium become the spring board for a work, and sometimes its my response to the every day world around me.

Here’s the lineup of what will be screening:

Mirage (1981) 9 min.
Rear Window (1986/91) 10 min.
Shadow (2007) 9 min.
Hurry Up Henrietta (2009) 12 min.
Waterfront Follies (2008) 39 min.

Film still from Waterfront Follies:

Sunset over a river
