One of Barbara HAMMER’s early films, Sisters! shows a place only women live. Women drive trucks, fix cars, paint and chop down trees. The director filmed the footage during the Women’s International Day march. The highlight of this women’s world is a festival scene in the last part of the movie. Topless women rock their bodies to the sounds of a drum from a band. Although its running time is short at 9 minutes, it gives an incredible feeling of freedom. [KWON Eunhye]
