Barbara Hammer, who forever changed avant-garde filmmaking by exploring lesbian identity and sexuality through experimental cinematic techniques, passed away in March 2019 due to cancer. We spoke to several artists who interacted with Hammer through Creative Capital and elsewhere in the art world—all of them recalled how much joy she exuded, even to her last days.
We speak to Mariam Ghani about her new documentary, her Creative Capital Project, What We Left Unfinished, which looks at the history of the Communist era between 1978 and 1991 through the stories of filmmakers working at the time. Ghani focuses on five unfinished films that both capture the turbulent events and emotions of the time, and also demonstrate the power and potential of these films beyond their propaganda value.
