Sherry Millner Characteristics


Sherry Millner has been producing films, videotapes, and photomontages since the mid-1970s. Her tapes are remarkable for the mixture of humor, analysis, and personal insight they manifest. Embracing a wide range of issues in her work, from the mundane to the political, Millner portrays an acute sense of the sublime and the ridiculous, a necessary virtue when tackling U.S. foreign policy. For example, The Desert Bush , produced in collaboration with her husband videomaker and writer Ernest Larsen, makes mincemeat out of George Bush's Gulf War rhetoric, casting the entire U.S. press corps into the role of skilled manipulators, refusing to see them as the bastions of truth they would have us believe.
