Buy Tickets


Double Feature with DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST

(1982) dir Kathleen Collins w/Seret Scott, Bill Gunn, Duane Jones [86 min; DCP]
The first feature length drama from a female African American director, Kathleen Collins’ LOSING GROUND is a semi-autobiographical film about a philosophy professor (Scott) whose personal and professional lives seem at odds during one fateful summer.

“Highly cerebral, thick with abstract and erudite dialogue and also full of charm and sensuality, lingering in landscapes and rooms and savoring the pleasures of music, color and talk.” – A. O. Scott, The New York Times

“A nearly lost masterwork… plays like the record of a life revealed in real time.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
