We screen three of the most representative works from the first period of American filmmaker Ernie Gehr. Framed within the so-called structural film, his film discourse trascends this classification, placing him in the category of a classic of the avant-garde.
A shot can be a film; a film, an arrangement of snapshots exposed for fractions of a second or endless minutes. With each beat—or intermittent projection of the stills—the light, which depends on the reflections, the lens or the emulsion, communicates with our nerves and reveals the true action.
