Poet, editor, filmmaker.

Béla, unrealised. An experimental film scenario written by Hungarian Dada artist and avant-garde filmmaker György Gerö, based on a book by Lajos Kassák and Imre Pál The History of the Isms (Pal Azizmusck tostenek), Magveto Budapest, 1972, and first published in 1924 in the dadaist review IS. The original scene-by-scene film script and complete scenario of the film consist of 4 pages currently housed in the Budapest City Archives. Gerö never completed the film. Bruce Checefsky later made a film inspired by Gerö's script, Béla (2009, 35mm, black & white, sound, 6:29 min) [1].

Lajos Kassák's review of the Dokumentum (1924) includes a descriptive passage of Gerö's conceptual theory as well as several key filmmaking techniques.

Since 1931 edited 'Index' magazine together with Árpád Mezei and Imre Pán.

Gerö was spared political prison, declared a neurotic and placed into a private hospital where all traces of him were lost. Filmed on location in Cleveland, Ohio.
