Gerstein began in the mainstream film industry in Los Angeles, as a film editor on feature films and television series from major Hollywood studios and television networks. He later branched out to academia, where he has written and directed narrative and experimental films that have exhibited in over thirty international film festivals. His current work has moved beyond the convention of film as an image on a screen to the intersection of motion picture, the still frame, and the third dimension in a gallery setting. His current work explores emotional attachments and fissures within contemporary family life, and their tenuous connection to a collective memory of trauma across generations.
