The Fiery Part of Fire: Works by Cameron Gibson


Echo Park Film Center is delighted to welcome back Chicago filmmaker Cameron Gibson for a screening of recent works. “Canny in their drops into the uncanny, Cameron’s works dutifully revel in concealment as revelation; always showing over telling. Psychological here refers to exterior faces to interior phases, while thinking and feeling these spaces with the complexity and compassion they require. Sometimes the films feel like puzzles that even when completed reveal a disquieting image—the pieces are all in their right place, but something doesn’t feel right. Drifting through experimental, documentary and narrative styles, tonight’s program deals with big things in small ways. Scenes are staged and stolen, capturing the strange feeling of watching, of being watched.” – Jesse Malmed

Cameron Gibson is a Chicago-based filmmaker, teacher and occasional landscaper. Blending documentary, narrative and experimental film, his work often delves into personal histories and the uncanny – both realizing and critiquing a fundamental voyeurism at the heart of filmmaking and film watching. Cameron has presented work at galleries and festivals worldwide, including the International Film Festival Rotterdam (The Netherlands), European Media Art Festival (Osnabrück, Germany), Galeria Zé dos Bois (Lisbon, Portugal), Winnipeg Underground Film Festival (Canada), MassArt Film Society (Boston, MA), Echo Park Film Center (Los Angeles, CA), EMP Collective (Baltimore, MD), The Nightingale Cinema, The Mission Projects, Gallery 400 and the Museum of Contemporary Art (all Chicago, IL). He studied film production at Northwestern University and received an MFA in Moving Image from University of Illinois at Chicago.
