One of the principle diversions hardwired into capitalism is the tireless pursuit of success. Don’t aim at success. For success—like happiness—cannot be pursued. They must ensue. Happiness must just happen, and the same holds for success. And you have to let it happen by not caring about it. — Flawless Sabrina*
Join artist and filmmaker Zackary Drucker for the UCLA Film & Television Archive screening of AT LEAST YOU KNOW YOU EXIST, her collaborative short with and about icon Flawless Sabrina (1939-2017). Drucker and Florrie Burke—the widow of Barbara Hammer—will follow up with a conversation about queer art and film.
A new Academy Film Archive print of Hammer’s debut feature NITRATE KISSES will also screen as part of the program, which includes an early Kenneth Anger short (FIREWORKS, 1947) and Mike Kuchar’s SEASCAPE (1984).
The evening is part of the Archive’s Pioneers of Queer Cinema series. See link below for details.
