"Barbara Hammer: Experimenting in Life and Art"

Victoria Ellison in the LA Weekly on this evening's event: "At 71, four years after a bout with cancer, the avant-garde Queer Cinema pioneer has never been more alive, with a retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art and London's Tate Modern, and a memoir, Hammer! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life. Hammer's visually lush, authentic, raw films (e.g., Multiple Orgasm, 1976) helped make gay women visible in cinema. This sensate force drives her richly poetic and layered films, two of which Hammer will present Monday at REDCAT: the West Coast premiere of Generations and the LA premiere of A Horse Is Not a Metaphor, a Teddy Award winner at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival."

Viewing (10'30"). Mike Everleth has documentation from Hammer's performance at the British Film Institute in March 2010.
