HAMMER!

Making Movies Out of Sex and Life

By Barbara Hammer

An iconic lesbian filmmaker charts her sexual and artistic coming of age.

HAMMER! 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, and her search for meaning as she contemplates mortality in the 2000s—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.

HAMMER! was the winner for the 2010 Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Nonfiction.
