Barbara Hammer (1939-2019): In Tribute
Three rich programs or recent restorations and new 16mm prints celebrating the career of Barbara Hammer, the singularly pioneering, lesbian feminist experimental filmmaker, who we lost earlier this year. The three programs – with over 20 works to screen — are but a sampling of this maker’s considerable and exuberant achievement, film and video work demonstrating an ongoing activist sensibility that encouraged an experimentation with the formal possibilities of her media and a representationally and politically expansive reach to her subject matter.
The programs are curated by KJ Relth, programmer for the UCLA Film & Television Archive, and Mark Toscano, film preservationist at the Academy Film Archive, the archive of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. (The notes here are provided by the curators). All 16mm prints are courtesy of the Academy Film Archive. Digital materials presented in arrangement with Electronic Arts Intermix and Video Data Bank. Thanks to the UWM Union Cinema, the UWM Department of Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres, and Woodland Pattern Book Center for their co-sponsorship of this series.
Free and Open to the Public!
Screening location: Woodland Pattern Book Center, 720 E. Locust., Milwaukee, WI 53212
