16mm Subversion: Barbara Hammer and Coni Beeson

June 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Pittsburgh Sound + Image brings to you an evening of West Coast experimental shorts by the legendary Barbara Hammer and her lesser known contemporary Coni Beeson. The selection of 1970s films highlights overlaps in their sensibilities, which were so often interested in nature, sexuality, and the female form.

Included will be the following films, presented on 16mm unless otherwise noted (order TBA):

Beeson

  • Firefly
  • Holding
  • The Now
  • Women (digital)

Hammer

  • Dyketactics
  • Menses
  • Multiple Orgasm
  • Psychosynthesis

In our current era of renewed repression of on-screen sexuality, this night of brash, subversive filmmaking is intended to question the line between art and pornography.

This event guest-curated by Dylan Pierce

Total program runtime: ~67 minutes
