Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: Wanda
Wanda (Barbara Loden, 1970, 102 mins)
New print! A Rust Belt divorcée drifts into a road trip with a bank robber in a drama written by, directed by, and starring Barbara Loden. Shot in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, this landmark of American independent cinema won Best Foreign Film at the Venice Film Festival and was aptly described by Justin Chang as “a haunting portrait of social and psychological entrapment.”
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
