Dyketactics: Three Films By Barbara Hammer
Presented as a partnership between Queensland Film Festival, the Institute of Modern Art, the Brisbane Queer Film Festival, and the National Film and Sound Archive, this free screening marks out the pioneering work of experimental filmmaker Barbara Hammer. These rare 16mm prints provided by through a partnership with the NFSA.
Please join us at 2pm for the screening, with an introduction to the films by University of Queensland’s Associate Professor Frances Bonner, from the School of Communication and Arts.
These three works by Barbara Hammer stab at history. Dyketactics (1974) is the first lesbian film by an out lesbian filmmaker; Endangered (1988) marks the possible extinction of the experimental milieu that allowed Dyketactics to come into existence. The feature work Nitrate Kisses (1992) folds in this queer history into a broader history, combining interviews with marginalised LGBT couples with the vestigial traces of lesbian and gay culture.
