"THE HAMMER MIX" + ANNOUNCEMENT OF BARBARA HAMMER GRANT WINNER
Various Artists. Runtime approx. 75 mins.
Tonight we celebrate legendary experimental filmmaker BARBARA HAMMER with a special mix of the lady-made movies that have inspired her prolific career. Some of the avant garde’s most influential women will be represented: Valie Export, Nancy Holt, Martha Rosler, Carolee Schneeman, among others. Hammer writes, “As a young female filmmaker I looked for predecessors. And they were there with gorgeous work that taught and inspired me. These short films are timeless and can give both aspiring and accomplished filmmakers of today the same jolt of energy and investigative curiosity they did for me in the 70s. Let's enjoy together once again!”
In addition to our normal Queer|Art|Film screening format, the evening will include the announcement of the first annual Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant!
As always, our screening will be followed by drinks and discussion at Julius Bar (159 West 10th St. at Waverly), the oldest gay bar in New York City!
