Director: Barbara Hammer
1992 / 106min / DCP

Hammer’s debut feature integrates the experiences of a diverse sampling of figures from the LGBTQ+ community—including a mixed-race gay couple, representative of the S/M community, and an older lesbian couple—with footage from Lot in Sodom (1933), one of the first American films to make explicit reference to homosexuality. With Anger’s Fireworks, a shoot-the-works celebration of outlawed sexuality; Kuchar’s Seascape, a gorgeous landscape film of ancient and echoing meanings paying homage to a lithe young muse caught at intersection of land and sea; and At Least You Know You Exist, trans artist Drucker’s collaboration with elder and activist Flawless Sabrina, both together onscreen after the latter gives a stirring recitation of an essay on the false promises of capitalism and consumption.

At Least You Know You Exist Preserved by UCLA Film & Television Archive. Fireworks preserved by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by The Film Foundation.
