The inimitable Kathleen Collins' second film tells the story of two remarkable people, married and hurtling toward a crossroads in their lives: Sara Rogers, a Black professor of philosophy, is embarking on an intellectual quest just as her painter husband, Victor, sets off on an exploration of joy. Victor decides to rent a country house away from the city, but the couple’s summer idyll becomes complicated by his involvement with a younger model. One of the very first fictional features by an African-American woman, LOSING GROUND remains a stunning and powerful work of art for being a funny, brilliant, and personal member of indie cinema canon.


DVD Extras Include:

BONUS FEATURES: Commentary track by Professors LaMonda Horton-Stallings and Terri Francis; Theatrical Trailer; THE CRUZ BROTHERS AND MISS MALLOY (1980), Kathleen Collins and Ronald Gray's first film; Video Interviews with Ronald K. Gray, Seret Scott and Nina Lorez Collins; Interview with Kathleen Collins by Phyllis R. Klotman; TRANSMAGNIFICAN DAMBAMUALITY (1976), Gray's celebrated lost student film
