Tell it Like it Is: Black Independent Filmmaking in NYC 1968-1986
The Film Society of Lincoln Center – Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center and Walter Reade Theater
Friday, February 6th – Thursday, February 19th
Tonight’s program highlights the opening night film, “Losing Ground” by Kathleen Collins.
Guests include co-producer and director of cinematography, Ronald Gray and Nina Collins, daughter of the late Kathleen Collins.
Ronald Gray is a filmmaker, musician and photographer. Working in film, he has been a producer, director, cinematographer and editor. His first film was the multi-award-winning Transmagnifican Dambamuality (1976), which also received two Creative Arts Program grants and one American Film Institute grant. Gray collaborated with Kathleen Collins as co-producer, cinematographer and co-editor on The Cruz Brothers and Miss Malloy and Losing Ground.
Nina Collins' mother, Kathleen Collins’s film career began in 1972. She was working at Channel Thirteen as an editor when she met Ronald Gray. Rejected by the WNET filmmaker-training program, he crashed and sat in on the course anyway, and that’s where they first met. A couple years later Ronald heard that Kathleen was teaching at City College. The first class he took with her was in the Speech department, where the assignment was to analyze how three speeches by Malcolm X changed over time.

You’re invited to be a part of a conversation that deals with understanding yourself. Often we hear discussions about chakras, oracles, tarots, energy, etc... But what does it all mean? What is a reading? Who are the people that do the readings? What is it that you need to know in order to understand when having a reading done? Our guess for this conversation is no stranger to Common Sense Conversations, Diyah Pinck, the owner and creator of Ori's Oasis and OrisOasis.com. Join us as she breaks it down for a simple understanding of practical spirituality! A lucky caller will receive a free reading from Diyah!
