Wed, Jan 26 2022, 5PM - 7PM
The Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art
Kathleen Collins’s Losing Ground (1982) tells the story of Sara Rogers, a philosophy professor embarking on an intellectual quest to understand “ecstasy” as she drifts further away from her painter husband. Sara seeks emotional release in her own creative practice to combat her growing discontent. Collins weaves a complex, open-ended story of personal discovery in the context of love, race, and gender.
The Lorraine O’Grady Film Club is hosted by Selam Bekele and Meghan Smith every month, on Wednesdays, from December 2021 to March 2022.
