Barbara Hammer: Ecstatic Subjectivity [16mm!]

October 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

THIS SCREENING IS FREE FOR EVERYONE!

The first of three programs of recently restored work honoring the pioneering filmmaker Barbara Hammer (1939-2019). Regarding tonight’s “visually ecstatic works,” Curators KJ Relth and Mark Toscano, of the Academy Film Archive, write: “Using various technical and formal approaches — including time lapse, optical printing, animation, and other material interventions — Hammer has regularly embraced the presence and physicality of film to deeply mine the rapture of subjective vision.” Complete listings on website. 16mm Prints courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.

(Barbara Hammer, USA, English, 75min, 1968-2010, 16mm)
