About This Event

1992 > USA > Directed by Barbara Hammer \ Nitrate Kisses explores the lost vestiges of lesbian and gay culture by putting the forbidden and invisible history of a marginalized people into the context of the contemporary sexual practices of four gay and lesbian couples. Made by the late Barbara Hammer, who was revered as one of the pioneers of lesbian cinema, Nitrate Kisses was included on indiewire\'s recent list of the all-time greatest films directed by women. It will be shown with another film cited on the list, Maya Deren\'s dreamlike short Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), which inspired Hammer to start making films. Cosponsored with LGBT Studies & the LGBT Resource Center. More at \ 1 hr 7 min \
