Directed by Barbara Loden
1970, USA, 102 min

With her first and only feature film—a hard-luck drama she wrote, directed, and starred in—Barbara Loden turned in a groundbreaking work of American independent cinema, bringing to life a kind of character seldom seen on-screen. Set amid a soot-choked Pennsylvania landscape, and shot in an intensely intimate vérité style, the film takes up with distant and soft-spoken Wanda (Loden), who has left her husband, lost custody of her children, and now finds herself alone, drifting between dingy bars and motels, and callously mistreated by a series of men—including a bank robber who ropes her into his next criminal scheme. Wanda is a compassionate and wrenching portrait of a woman stranded on society’s margins. Barbara Loden acted in Elia Kazan’s films “Wild River” and “Splendor in the Grass.”

*Winner International Critics’ Prize at the Venice Film Festival, 1970.

Restoration Tuesdays: More and more there is essential work being done across the world on the front lines in the battle against losing the history of film to the annals of time, ignorance, and neglect. Efforts to find and restore classic and important; obscure and forgotten film works by such trailblazing organizations as the UCLA Film and Television Archive, Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation, American Genre Film Archive, Milestone Film and Video and Janus Films has resulted in some of the most exciting cinema releases in recent years. We are endeavouring to find and present some of the best examples of these new restorations, and have expanded our program calendar to now include Tuesdays in a new series called Restoration Tuesdays.

All admission to these screenings is $5.
