"Barbara Hammer (b. 1939) is a key figure in the 'second wave' of experimental women filmmakers. She has been making films that are technically innovative, personal, essayistic, political, and passionate for five decades. Nurtured and inspired by the films and lives of Maya Deren and Marie Menken, Hammer’s filmmaking practice took root in the ’70s, when she became a pioneering figure in the film portrayal of lesbian identity, creating iconic works like Dyketactics (1974). Through her work as a filmmaker, teacher, and author, she continues to inspire young women filmmakers. Her book, Hammer: Making Movies Out of Sex and Life was published by The Feminist Press in 2010." (Promo Copy)
