Details:

Our second program dedicated to Barbara Hammer’s pioneering work includes recent Academy Film Archive and Electronic Arts Intermix restorations of Menses (1974), Superdyke (1975) and Audience (1983). Hammer’s overlapping identities as a queer woman, artist and activist coalesce in films that capture feminist and lesbian social movements in public and private, transforming the act of documentation into jubilation. Curated by KJ Relth and Mark Toscano.

In person: UCLA Film & Television Archive programmer and curator KJ Relth
