Join us for a screening and celebration of black independent cinema in New York City. Spike Lee got his start there in the 1980s, but he was only one of many talented artists who were part of the scene. The Intersections Working Group at Princeton, In collaboration with Milestone Films, is proud to present rarely screened work “beyond Spike.” Kathleen Collins’s feature LOSING GROUND (1982) tells the story of a marriage between a philosophy professor and a conceptual artist who must wrestle with their commitments in life and to each other. The film is preceded by Ronald K. Gray’s experimental short TRANSMAGNIFICAN DAMBAMUALITY (1976). After the screening there will be a Q&A with director Ronald K. Gray and Milestone Films’ Amy Heller and Dennis Doros.

Free and open to the public.
