The Radical 1970s: Coming Out

Barbara Hammer (American, b. 1939) is renowned for creating the earliest and most extensive body of avant-garde films on lesbian life and sexuality. In this evening of performance-driven films, Hammer captures the free-love era, the second wave of feminism, and the West Coast art scene.

Program 79 Min.
Followed by a Q&A discussion with Barbara Hammer and Stephen Kent Jusick, Executive Director, MIX NYC, Friday, October 1. On the line-up for this evening:

  • Sisters! 1974. This film, made by, for, and about women, shows women in nontraditional roles running the machinery of the world. The film includes scenes of the first Women’s Liberation march in 1970. 8 min.

  • Women’s Rites or Truth Is the Daughter of Time. 1974. An autumnal celebration, held on “witches’ land” in Northern California, of fall leaves, brooks and bathing, chanting circles, and women’s rites. 8 min.

  • Menses. 1974. A humorous look at the trials of menstruation. 4 min.

* Admission to MoMA is free for all visitors during Target Free Friday Nights, held every Friday evening from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tickets for Target Free Friday Nights are not available in advance. Your Target Free Friday Night ticket permits you to all other Museum galleries, exhibitions, and films.

Call for Volunteers

Lastly, we're also proud to remind everyone that MIX NYC is an ALL-VOLUNTEER grassroots organization. Why do we do it? Because queer experimental film is the best. It's EXCITING, REVOLUTIONARY, TRANSFORMATIONAL, AND RADICAL. Plus, everything is better when you do it together.

From ticket-taking, to flyering, to sweeping the floors... we can use all the help we can get.

If you would like to VOLUNTEER for this year's festival, or have questions about volunteering, contact us at

79 Pine Street #132
New York, NY 10005
