Barbara Hammer (1939-2019)
Superdyke (1975)
1975, 17:34 min, color, sound, 16 mm film on video
""Superdyke is a gem from early liberation days. Influenced by feminism and lesbian militancy, Hammer’s films are politically pointed, bearing witness to lesbian empowerment and visibility, and formally sophisticated, fully cognizant of experimental film history. Superdyke gives the superhero a witty dyke inflection. It runs from mellow nature-loving to savvy urban pop, showing the thematic range of its author and the multiplicity of lesbian experience." — Juan Antonio Suarez -- EAI
