Born in Los Angeles but a New Yorker by choice, Barbara Hammer is a whole genre unto herself. Her pioneering 1974 short film Dyketactics, a four-minute, hippie wonder consisting of frolicking naked women in the countryside, broke new ground for its exploration of lesbian identity, desire and aesthetic. Hammer calls the film her ‘lesbian commercial.’ She went on to become one of the brightest and most significant lesbian avant-garde filmmaking voices of the past 40 years.
