A Horse Is Not A Metaphor

A HORSE IS NOT A METAPHOR

Filmmaker Barbara Hammer fights ovarian cancer with visions of horseback riding and river swimming in her new experimental film A Horse Is Not A Metaphor. Hammer says she is a "cancer thriver as well as survivor" in this hopeful and densely layered personal work with music by composer Meredith Monk.
