Description

The first book by influential filmmaker Barbara Hammer, whose life and work have inspired generations of queer, feminist and avant-garde artists and filmmakers. The wild days of non-monogamy in the 1970s, the development of the queer aesthetic in the 80s and the fight for visibility during the culture wars of the 1990s, Hammer's search for meaning as she contemplates mortality in the past 10 years - Hammer! Includes text and images from all these periods to create a memoir as innovative and disarming as her work on screen has always been.

Author Biography

Barbara Hammer has made over eighty films and video works over the past forty years. Her experimental films of the 1970s often dealt with taboo subjects such as menstruation, female orgasm, and lesbian sexuality. She received the first Shirley Clarke Avant-Garde Filmmaker Award in October 2006, the Women In Film Award from the St. Louis International Film Festival in 2006, and the Teddy Award for best short film for A Horse Is Not A Metaphor at the 2009 International Berlin Film Festival.
