‘Losing Ground’ Virtual Discussion May 23

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Jewish Community Arts and Temple Sinai present a Zoom discussion of the film, “Losing Ground” at 7 p.m. on May 23.

Kathleen Collins’ film Losing Ground, a 1982 independent romantic drama of an imploding marriage of two intellectuals, a university professor and her artist husband, struggled to find distribution at the time of its conception. And even though it made history as one of the first feature films written and directed by a Black woman, Losing Ground remained largely unseen by the time Collins died of breast cancer in 1988, at the age of 46. Collins shattered artistic barriers, but her work remained in obscurity for nearly 40 years. 

Losing Ground can be seen on YouTube. Registration is required for the Zoom meeting link at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. For updates please follow saratogajewishculturalfestival.org; saratogasinai.org and on Facebook.
