Using complex hand-wrought editing methods and extensive optical printing Gerstein’s work dazzles in its visual complexity and rhythmic timing. Gerstein’s recent work innovatively integrates desktop image scanners into her analog filmmaking process, capturing minute personal gestures in a sort of slow-motion real-time animation process, creating a visuality both intimate and abstract. – Steve Polta, SF Cinematheque
Her films have been screened and awarded prizes at festivals worldwide and awarded grants by New York Council for the Arts, N Y Foundation for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and a Rockefeller Media Arts Fellowship.
