(1982, Kathleen Collins) “This low-budget 1982 drama was one of the first features directed by an African-American woman, but it's much more than a historical footnote. A black philosophy professor at a New York college (Seret Scott), working on a paper about ‘ecstatic experience,’ starts to reevaluate her life and realizes that for years she’s lived without passion. Writer-director Collins charts the character’s emotional breakdown subtly and perceptively, never drawing easy conclusions about her life.” – Ben Sachs, The Chicago Reader. With Bill Gunn, Duane Jones. DCP. Approx. 86 min.
