Event Description

This mesmerising, lyrical film, released in 1982, is a study of the strained relationship between philosophy professor Sara and her mercurial painter husband Victor.
Buoyant following the acquisition of his work by a museum, Victor implores Sara to join him for a summer retreat in upstate New York. She acquiesces, but when they reach their destination, matters are complicated by Victor’s roving eye (he instantly embarks on a serious flirtation with a beautiful Puerto Rican dancer) and Sara’s commitment to her academic research on the pursuit of the ‘ecstatic’, a state stubbornly at odds with her bookish, serious persona.
It is an ultra rare example of a feminist film focused on a complex, intellectual and sexual black female character.
