Losing Ground (Kathleen Collins, 1982, 86 mins)
Preservation premiere! An academic and an artist leave New York for a summer in the country, where their relationship is tested by professional rivalry and romantic jealousy. “Defined by a nimble élan and piercing wit,” remarked Melissa Anderson, “Collins’s movie ranks as one of the best about a marriage between two ambitious members of the creative class.” Restored by the Yale Film Archive and The Film Foundation. Funding provided by the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation.
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
