Funny, brilliant, and personal, Kathleen Collins’ Losing Ground (1982) should have ranked high in the canon of 1980s American independent cinema but was never theatrically released. Among the first feature films written and directed by a black woman, Collins’ passing at the age of 46 almost meant the film's erasure from history, until the filmmaker's daughter set out to restore this groundbreaking romance exploring sexuality, modern marriage, and intellectual pursuit. Losing Ground is here paired with the animated musical short Hair Piece: A Film for Nappy-Headed People (1984) by Ayoka Chenzira, who will be joining us for a live Q&A via Skype! Curated by Caitlin Coder.
