Personal Problems (1980)

Directed by Bill Gunn

Co-Presented with Black Folks Make Movies

Doors at 6:00 PM, Screening at 6:30 PM

@ The Mini Microcinema - 1329 Main St.


Personal Problems is an entirely African American-conceived and produced ensemble drama. The film is a collaboration of a pair of pioneering Black artists: writer Ishmael Reed and filmmaker Bill Gunn, who wrote and directed the underground classic Ganja & Hess and wrote the screenplay for Hal Ashby's The Landlord. Originally intended to air on public television in 1980, Personal Problems went unseen for many years, but has recently been restored from the original tapes.

(165 minutes) Free with $5 suggested donation.
