Losing Ground

This recently rediscovered comedy-drama from a little-known black woman filmmaker (Kathleen Collins, who died in 1988) has become an unusual success story more than 30 years after it was filmed. It's the story of a troubled marriage between two remarkable people, both at a crossroads in their lives. Sara Rogers (Billie Allen) is a professor of philosophy, embarking on an intellectual quest to understand "ecstasy," while her painter husband sets off on a more earthy exploration of "joy." Things come to a head when the couple try to spend their summer at an idyllic country house. 86 minutes Unrated.
