Gerry
Gus Van Sant
Fiction : 103' / Identity, Dystopia

Two men named Gerry are driving through the desert regions of Death Valley, traveling towards an unknown destination. They pull over and set out on foot, presuming they’re getting close to what they’ve come to find. Before long, Gerry and Gerry are both lost in an unforgiving desert without food, water, or other provisions, and the harder they try to find their way back to their car, the deeper they dig themselves into the desert.

Gus Van Sant (Louisville, Kentucky, USA, 1952) is a film director, screenwriter, painter, photographer, musician and author. Influenced by painting and experimental cinema, he started shooting in 1981 and worked in an advertising agency until producing his first feature film, Mala Noche, in 1985. With recurring themes such as homosexuality and subcultures, his work is considered essential for North American independent cinema of the last quarter of the century.
