Remembering Barbara Hammer – San Francisco Cinematheque

The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

San Francisco Cinematheque and Canyon Cinema present a special memorial screening in honor of the recently departed pioneering lesbian feminist filmmaker Barbara Hammer (1939–2019). Details to follow at

“Capturing subjects considered verboten—joyous lesbian sensuality, female sexual pleasure, aging, death and dying, menstruation—Hammer boldly confronts normative representations of women and characterizations of gender expression, commanding and claiming space for a refreshingly new aesthetic and sensibility, queer or otherwise, in experimental film that continues to inspire generations of artists across myriad layers of identification.” (KJ Relth and Mark Toscano, for a program presented at the UCLA Film & Television Archive)
