Barbara Hammer is well-known to the Cinematheque’s audience. For many years a Bay Area resident, she was one of the first filmmakers during the ’70s to forthrightly identify herself with the Lesbian community and reflect that identity in her films. Barbara now teaches in Washington state and too rarely ventures to the big city with her films. For this, her first in-person show in the Bay Area in almost 5 years, she will present a mix of local premieres of new work along with some old favorites

Films: I Was/I Am (1973), Psychosynthesis (1975), Doll House (1984), Parisian Blinds (1984), Optic Nerve (1985), Place Mattes (1987) and others.
