Barbara Hammer is a true cinematic pioneer; her tremendous body of work continues to inspire audiences and artists alike.
Jenni Olson, LGBT film historian

Cinematheque presents an afternoon tribute to and an illustrated lecture from Barbara Hammer on the occasion of the publication HAMMER! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life, the first book by the influential filmmaker whose life and work have inspired a generation of queer, feminist, and avant-garde artists and filmmakers. The wild days of non-monogamy in the 1970s, the development of a queer aesthetic in the 1980s, the fight for visibility during the culture wars of the 1990s, her search for meaning as she contemplates mortality in the past ten years–Hammer will guide us through these years with this enlivened and engaging talk and performance.
