Barbara Hammer (1939-2019)
Multiple Orgasm (1976)
The first shot of the film is of the filmmaker, Barbara Hammer, pointing her camera to the ground and zooming into her shadow. Superimposed is an extreme close-up of a clitoris, superimposed over a series of static shots of smooth, sensual rock formations. The closeup evolves into a sequence showing the clitoris being stimulated, then switches to a close shot of a woman's face as she experiences orgasm.
