Description

Nitrate Kisses explores eroded emulsions and images for lost vestiges of lesbian and gay culture in this first feature by a pioneer of lesbian cinema, Barbara Hammer. A forbidden and invisible history of a marginalized people are put in context by the contemporary sexual activities of four gay and lesbian couples. The role of sexuality in the historic present underscores the resistance of two cultures, gay and lesbian, struggling to survive in the complex interaction of power and domination of a dominant heterosexist ideology. Preceded by: Sisters! (Barbara Hammer). This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s new series, Queering the Lens, a selection of groundbreaking nonfiction films that re-imagine or “queer” the form of documentary.
