Ernie Gehr

Structuralist Films

Ernie Gehr is a self taught experimental filmmaker closely associated with the Structural film movement of the 1970s. He was inspired to make films after viewing a Stan Brakage screening in the 1960s.

Gehr creates non-narrative works — sometimes jarring or disorientating, often meditative — that naturally raise questions about the physical world and human perception.

I find this relates to my work in terms of looking into the media and censorship and how things are perceived. In particular how the current ISIS situation is being perceived and the different ways it can interpreted.
