Walter Ungerer was born in New York City in 1935 of German immigrants. He studied art and architecture at Pratt Institute, receiving a BFA degree in 1958. He went on to Columbia University receiving an MA and PD in 1964. His first film "The Tasmanian Devil" was made in 1965 while living in a loft in the "flower district" of New York City. His third film "Meet Me, Jesus" gained him national recognition as a film artist through exposure at the Ann Arbor Film Festival. In 1969 "Ubi Est Terram Oobiae?" was included in a world-wide MoMA touring program that furthered his reputation. That year Ungerer moved to Vermont. In 2003 Ungerer moved to Maine, where he continues to produce his work. His most recently completed feature "down the road" debuted at the Syracuse International Film Festival in the Spring 2005, and a retrospective of his films was shown in Kiel, Germany in April 2006. Later in November 2006 Ungerer traveled through northern Germany showing his work. His most recent video installation debuted at the Space Gallery in Portland, Maine, March 2006. In 2008 it was installed at the Brattleboro Museum of Art, Brattleboro, Vermont. In December 2008 Echo Park Film Center and the Eqyptian Theatre, both in Los Angeles; hosted programs of Ungerer's recent works including SUCH AS IT IS, EPITAPH, and THE SALT SHAKER AND THE MOON. Ungerer came to Los Angeles for the week of the showings. Presently Ungerer is organizing a program of films by Maine artists.
