Killing Time

Dir. Fronza Woods
1979, 10min, digital

 

This offbeat, wryly humorous look at the dilemma of a would-be suicide unable to find the right outfit to die in, examines the personal habits, socialization, and complexities of life that keep us going.

 
The Cruz Brothers and Miss Malloy

Dir. Kathleen Collins
With Randy Ruiz, Jose Machado, Lionel Pina
1980, 54min, DCP

 

The first film by Kathleen Collins—the pioneering black director whose long-unseen 1982 feature Losing Ground was one of the major rediscoveries of the last decade—is a warmly comic, magical realist tale of three Puerto Rican brothers living in upstate New York and their relationship to both an eccentric widow and the ghost of their dead father.

Intro by Nina Collins, daughter of Kathleen Collins.

 
 
 
Fannie's Film

Dir. Fronza Woods
1979, 15min, digital

 

A cleaning woman performs her job while voiceover narration expresses her inner thoughts, hopes, goals, and feelings in this challenge to received stereotypes about women of color who earn their living as domestic workers.
