Barbara Hammer needs no introduction.

A pioneer of queer cinema, Hammer has been an active filmmaker for over four decades, directing more than 80 experimental films and documentaries. In 2010 the Museum of Modern Art presented a month-long retrospective of her work, and she was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013. In mid-February, South Side Projections, the Nightingale, the Counter Cinema/Counter Media Project at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, and the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts will honor Hammer with a two-night celebration, the first major retrospective of her work in Chicago in more than 20 years.

On Friday, February 16 at 7pm, the Nightingale Cinema (1084 N. Milwaukee Ave.) will host a mini-retrospective on 16mm. The films being shown are PSYCHOSYNTHESIS (1975), SISTERS! (1974), STILL POINT (1989), ENDANGERED (1988), OPTIC NERVE (1985), VITAL SIGNS (1991), and SANCTUS (1990). The program is approximately 90 minutes long.
