Saratoga Jewish Community Arts and Temple, Sinai with a generous grant from The Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York, present the Zoom discussion of Losing Ground on May 23 at 7 PM.
Kathleen Collins’ film Losing Ground, a 1982 independent romantic drama of an imploding marriage of two intellectuals, a university professor and her artist husband, struggled to find distribution at the time of its conception. And even though it made history as one of the first feature films written and directed by a Black woman, Losing Ground remained largely unseen by the time Collins died of breast cancer in 1988, at the age of 46. Collins shattered artistic barriers, but her work remained in obscurity for nearly 40 years.
Losing Ground can be seen on You-Tube. The Zoom discussion of Losing Ground will be held May 23, 2021, at 7 PM. Registration required at email@example.com.
