Sam Gurry is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and educator creating films, sounds, and occasionally beautiful omelettes. Their films have been in the official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Slamdance, Ann Arbor, and the Ottawa International Animation Festival among others. Sam received an MFA from CalArts in Experimental Animation. They live in Hollywood, California but don’t hold it against them.
Formerly an Antiques appraiser, Sam’s practice explores the ephemeral especially as it concerns the manifestation of unintended personal archives.
They perform as one half of expanded cinema duo Saint Victoria’s Incorruptible Body providing guitar and vocals.
Sam has spoken at the Echo Park Film Center, California Institute of the Arts, ASIFA East, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, and A-Space in Philadelphia.
