“The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that position be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time.” -Angela Davis

February 5: Welcome to This House film screening with Barbara Hammer



welcomeToThisHouse_WEBWelcome to This House (79 min., 2015, Dir. Barbara Hammer)

a film screening & discussion with Barbara Hammer & Barbara Browning

February 5, Friday
6 to 8 pm

Barbara Hammer, visual artist & filmmaker

Barbara Browning, Performance Studies, New York University

Welcome To This House (2015) is a feature documentary film on the homes and loves of poet Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979), about life in the shadows, and the anxiety of art making without full self-disclosure. Hammer filmed in Bishop’s ‘best loved homes’ in the U.S., Canada, and Brazil believing that buildings and landscapes bear cultural memories. Interviews with poets, friends, and scholars provide “missing documents” of numerous female lovers. Bishop’s intimate poetry is beautifully performed by Kathleen Chalfant and with the creative music composition by Joan La Barbara brings Bishop into our lives with new ways and unexpected details.
