Poetry in Focus – Losing Ground

December 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm EST

Charleston Poet Laureate A$iahMae, in partnership with the MOJA Arts Festival, presents Poetry in Focus: An Ekphrastic Love Letter to Film In Response to “Losing Ground.” This evening assembles poets Queen Guillotine and TTruthSeeker The Poet, and experimental music duo Geechee Technologies in a collective celebration of Kathleen Collins’ landmark independent film, released in 1982. When “Losing Ground” was re-issued in 2015 and screened at Lincoln Center as part of “Tell It Like It Is: Black Independents in New York, 1968 – 1986,” critic A.O. Scott noted in the New York Times, “This movie is fascinating — a puzzle and a marvel, eliciting wonder and provoking questions.” Learn more about “Losing Ground” here: milestonefilms.com/products/losing-ground or view the trailer on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cKLqLuZJzs
