HAMMER! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life is the first book by influential filmmaker Barbara Hammer, whose life and work have inspired a generation of queer, feminist, and avant-garde artists and filmmakers. The wild days of non-monogamy in the 1970s, the development of a queer aesthetic in the 1980s, the fight for visibility during the culture wars of the 1990s, her search for meaning as she contemplates mortality in the past ten years—HAMMER! includes texts from these periods, new writings, and fully contextualized film stills to create a memoir as innovative and disarming as her work has always been. She is considered a pioneer of queer cinema, and this event celebrates her life and work with clips of past work, a Q&A and a reading from her forthcoming book, Hammer! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life.

A reception will follow.
