Nitrate Kisses + Generations
With Generations co-director Joey Carducci in person
“At the heart of Barbara Hammer’s first feature, the now-iconic Nitrate Kisses, is a question articulated as a radical action: How do we discover and define cinematic images of queerness? The resulting film is both a query as to the very nature of a queer cinema as well as a complex and deeply empathic gesture towards the ongoing creation of one. By employing gorgeous black and white cinematography intermixed with historical found footage, Hammer aesthetically disintegrates temporal, geographical, creative, and political boundaries in her effort to unify rather than separate. Embracing and exploring sexuality, intimacy, and identity across wide expanses of time, age, gender, race, and politics, Nitrate Kisses still stands today as a defining call to action and awareness not just for queer cinema, but for our larger global consciousness.
Paired with Nitrate Kisses 是 Generations, Hammer’s collaborative film with Joey Carducci, in which two queer filmmakers of different generations each bring their distinctive visions to material recorded together but edited individually. The result is an unpredictable and affectionately self-reflexive ride exploring tactility and subjectivity in a kaleidoscopic rush of visual pleasure.” —KJ Relth and Mark Toscano
