Ernie Gehr--World Premiere of Cotton Candy November 3

Cotton Candy. 2001. USA. Ernie Gehr. Gehr, one of America's leading avant-garde filmmakers, describes his new work as: "Reflections upon a passing century by way of cinema, penny arcade automata and carnival amusements--'low' forms of entertainment that have seized and spooked our imagination, becoming major emblematic icons of twentieth century culture. This unusual piece may also be described as a comic musical, shuffling us across the passage of time, the inevitable process of mechanical aging and the beginnings of early twenty-first century popular culture." World premiere, filmmaker present. 64 min. Saturday, November 3, 6:00

Ernie Gehr--World Premiere of Cotton Candy was organized by Mary Lea Bandy, Chief Curator, Department of Film and Media.
