Homage to Barbara Hammer

Barbara Hammer has helped, over eighty films, to write the history of feminist cinema. With her sensual exploration of lesbian identity, she confronted the dominant narrative and proposed new ways of telling about sexuality and the body. The writer and activist So Mayer describes her as an experimental pioneer who put lesbian life on screen. “Hammer defined lesbian cinema almost single-handed, with the double strength of her formal experimentation and her political commitment. Her generosity of spirit, intellect and embodiment lives on in the films she made that changed the landscape not only of cinema, but of our queer lives and histories.” One year after her death, Punto de Vista pays tribute, with a special session, to this essential artist.
