“It has been the goal of my life to put a lesbian lifestyle on the screen. Why? Because when I started I couldn’t find any!”
– Barbara Hammer
Opening with “lesbian commercial” Dyketactics, this selection of shorts from the maverick queer cinema pioneer Barbara Hammer (1939-2019) explores the female body, desire and pleasure through experimentations with film.
