Rental Format(s): 16mm film

The sub-personalities of me as baby, athlete, witch and artist are synthesized in this film of superimpositions, intensities, and color layers coming together through the powers of film.

"... I would gladly go out of my way to see it again and would travel some distance to see a retrospective of its author's work." -
- Tom Dowling, Washington Star

"Ms. Hammer, a feminist artist in a male-dominated industry, is clearly someone who has ideas which go beyond male-female roles into the very nature of the film experience. Her awards and prizes include the Louise Riskin Prize and her short films are nationally distributed and have received praise at the New York Women's Experimental Film Festival, the Women's Media Festival and the Pasadena Filmforum, among others."
- Ron Cowan, The Oregon Statesman
