Barbara Loden's Landmark Indie Drama!
WANDA
New Restoration!

WANDA
1970, Janus Films, 103 min, USA, Dir: Barbara Loden

Writer-director Barbara Loden’s sole feature is a groundbreaking work of American independent cinema, bringing to life a kind of character seldom seen onscreen. 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, she is callously mistreated by a series of men - including a bank robber who ropes her into his next criminal scheme. A rarely seen masterpiece that has nonetheless exerted an influence on generations of artists and filmmakers, WANDA is a compassionate and wrenching portrait of a woman stranded on society’s margins. “One of the best American independent films ever made." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
