  • A Horse Is Not a Metaphor

    2008. USA. Directed by Barbara Hammer. This hopeful, multilayered experimental film with music by Meredith Monk offers a first-person account of surviving—and thriving—with cancer. 58 min.

  • Diving Women of Jeju-do

    2007. USA. Directed by Barbara Hammer. On the South Korean island of Jeju-do, the women carry on a fishing tradition: diving without a breathing apparatus to collect sea urchins, octopus, shellfish, and seaweed. Living without health insurance, the women sustain themselves with drugs and nutrient shots. But the tradition is dying out, as young women choose to avoid the grueling work and its attendant health problems. In Korean; English subtitles. 30 min.
