Directed by Kathleen Collins | 1982

With Seret Scott, Bill Gunn, Duane Jones

Kathleen Collins’ wonderfully smart, complex exploration of relationships and sexuality—one of the first from the perspective of a black woman director—centers on a cerebral philosophy professor and her free-spirited artist husband as they get in touch with their inner desires on a summer idyll in upstate New York. The effortlessly breezy style belies a nuanced understanding of the ways in which gender, race, and class shape our relationships.
