Fridae had an interview with one of the most prolific lesbian feminist filmmaker in the history of cinema, Barbara Hammer,was in town for a screening of several of her over 80 experimental shorts, videos and features. It’s there on the screen in all its flushed glory. A close up of a woman’s genitals, a finger vigorously rubs the clitoris.

“As one of the world’s most prolific lesbian filmmakers, Hammer appears keen to inspire these young Chinese women. China’s answer to Hammer, lesbian documentary maker Shi Tou, is in the audience.

“Don’t listen to your male professors,” Hammer says. “Or your female ones. Just do what you want to do… Make your films. Make your work. We need it or your histories are lost. Our histories are lost.”
