History Lessons


Rental Format(s): 16mm film

In this wonderfully irreverent yet empowering film, Barbara Hammer traces lesbian history by presenting an extraordinary array of archival footage - and then playfully manipulates it to make it seem as though lesbians were everywhere. From popular films to newsreels, sex ed pics, stag reels, medical and educational films, old nudies and more, History Lessons reclaims and rewrites lesbian history.

"Bold...inventive...audacious!" - Time Out New York

"Witty, giddy, unexpected, cheeky & subversive...a shameless imaginative assertion of Gay Pride throughout the 20th Century, one that identifies, invents and/or smirkingly implies gleeful lesbian sexuality in every cultural nook and cranny." - Variety
