Mediated Sensuality: The Films of Barbara Hammer

  • Billy Wilder Theatre 10889 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90024 United States (map)

7:30 PM, Billy Wilder Theatre, $10

In-person: filmmaker Barbara Hammer will sign books beginning at 6:30 p.m. and participate in a Q&A after the screening.

Beginning with her best-known short and ending with her most recent work, this program highlights Hammer’s playful, unfolding dialogue between corporeality and artistic method. Employing double exposure, optical printing, computer animation, and unexpected structural elements, these six works offer a primer on Hammer’s visual imagination and career-long fascination with the scintillating power of touch.
