History Lessons

Lesbian experimental filmmaker Barbara Hammer has created a sort of gay history version of Atomic Cafe. This "found footage" documentary cut-and-pastes everything from Eleanor Roosevelt speeches to ancient nudie films to classroom sex ed pics to Leni Riefenstahl documentaries in an attempt to place in context the long-marginalized image of lesbians in America. This rapid-fire, free-form mixture of kitsch, pornography and propaganda forces viewers to draw their own conclusions but rarely fails to be both shocking and amusing. 65 minutes
