Losing Ground (1982) dir. Kathleen Collins

6/19-6/21 @ Brattle


Kathleen Collins completed Losing Ground, her “nearly lost masterwork,” a mere THIRTY-THREE YEARS before its theatrical release this winter at The Film Society of Lincoln Center, where its run was extended due to popular demand, wow. True to its reception at FSLC, you’ll find nothing but ebullient  praise for this near-tabula rasa of American independent cinema memory. One of the first feature-length films written and directed by an African-American woman, Losing Ground concerns a professor of philosophy at the decision points of her career and personal life, where she learns about her desires in that well-examined, sometimes ecstatic, sometimes monotonous way that’s the wont of thinking, loving, flesh-bound persons. Catch up with this milestone marvel at the Brattle Theatre from 6/19 – 6/21. Screening info
