“A startling, totally idiosyncratic work of art….I felt quite certain I was seeing something unlike anything I had seen before.”
—Nick Pinkerton, Artforum
Only now receiving a full theatrical release, this experimental drama by the director of Ganga & Hess is one of the most anticipated restoration projects of the year. Bill Gunn’s Personal Problems follows a married couple’s respective infidelities while capturing the look and feel of Harlem in the late 1970s. Originally intended for public television, the semi-improvised “meta-soap opera” was written by the great Ishmael Reed, shot on video, and produced by an all African American crew working on a shoestring budget. (164 mins., DCP)
