I Was/I Am

Directed by Barbara Hammer
United States, 1983
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

In her first 16mm film, an homage to Maya Deren, Hammer proudly extracts the key to her motorcycle from her mouth. As Meshes of the Afternoon was Deren’s key to her life as a filmmaker, I Was/I Am is Hammer’s proclamation as a filmmaker and an independent woman.
