Everyday Ecstasy: A Restoration Tribute to Barbara Hammer

Vi får besøk av filmskaper, kurator og filmkonservator Mark Toscano fra The Academy Film Archive. Dette programmet vier seg til den nylig avdøde filmskaperen Barbara Hammer.

In collaboration with Atelier Nord, we are proud to present two programmes curated by Mark Toscano, a filmmaker, curator, and film preservationist based in Los Angeles. Since 2003 he has worked at the Academy Film Archive, where he specializes in the curation, conservation, and preservation of artists’ films. He is a programmer with Los Angeles Filmforum, and has lectured at various universities on experimental film and archiving, as well as teaching in the Experimental Animation department at CalArts. Mark will be present to introduce the screenings.

Everyday Ecstasy: A Restoration Tribute to Barbara Hammer

For the past few years at the Academy Film Archive I have been organizing, archiving, and restoring the films of Barbara Hammer. Throughout this time, Barbara was in the process of dying. Despite worsening health and diminishing energy, she remained an unbelievable positive spirit representing pure optimism, creativity, righteousness, and love. This program of recently restored masterworks will showcase the diverse talents and radical modes of filmic expression employed by an absolute legend of queer feminist cinema. She died on March 16, 2019.
