Still from Dottie Gets Spanked

Dottie Gets Spanked

Tuesday Sep 27, 2016 7:30 PM This is a past program

In honor of this year’s Hammer Gala honoree Todd Haynes, we screen one of the filmmaker’s earliest works. Dottie Gets Spanked, a surreal suburban fantasy about a young boy’s obsession with a television show, features Haynes’s signature play with gender identity, celebrity, and midcentury repressions. (1993, dir. Todd Haynes, 16mm, 45 min.)

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.
