Prismatic Autobiography

Stress Scars and Pleasure Wrinkles
November 10, 2018 - 7:30 pm
filmmaker Barbara Hammer will sign books beginning at 6:30 p.m. and participate in a Q&A after the screening.

Los Angeles Filmforum members receive free admission at the box office!

Barbara Hammer will sign copies of Hammer! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life, Truant: Photographs 1970-1979, and Evidentiary Bodies in the lobby beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Lustrous not only in their shimmering hues but in their ecstatic, deeply emotional, and highly personal narratives, these three works evoke an artist’s active attempts to define herself and self-compose a herstory leaving indelible marks on lesbian feminist cinema in the process.
