LSFF 2018: Radical Softness: Barbara Hammer and Chick Strand | ICA | Saturday, 13. January 2018

“My life changed through touching another woman whose body was similar to my own. My sense of touch became my connection to the screen. I wanted the screen to be felt by the audience in their own bodies.” - Barbara Hammer, The Screen as the Body, Mousse 32

A combined screening of Chick Strand and Barbara Hammer, exploring the idea of ‘radical softness’ - the power in being both abrasively feminine and openly vulnerable, subverting emotion from weakness to strength - through a radically soft camera and Hammer and Strand’s specifically haptic modes of filmmaking.

In association with MUBI. Accompanied by Skype Q&A with Hammer in conversation with Club des Femmes‘ Selina Robertson.
