Personal Problems

This entirely African American–conceived and –produced drama comes from the pioneering writer Ishmael Reed and filmmaker Bill Gunn, who wrote and directed the underground classic Ganja & Hess. Originally intended to air on public television in 1980, it went unseen for many years; the original tapes have been carefully restored and this experimental, challenging film about married life in New York City at the time is now available in its full-length version for the first time in decades.
