Wanda: American Independent

Wanda: American Independent

Our American Independent series hits the road with director Barbara Loden's singular 1970 masterpiece Wanda.

Wanda Goronski (Loden) finds herself immensely disillusioned with her position as a Pennsylvania housewife, taking initiative by leaving her husband and staying on her sister's couch. But her journey only begins, as Wanda simply hitches ride after ride in a gradual effort to escape the confines of her middle-class life. Soon, she finds herself within the company of Norman (Michael Higgins), a full-time crook who spins Wanda into further, and subsequently dangerous territory.

Having recently acquired a spot in Sight & Sound's Top 100 Films of All Time, Wanda is a stark and beautifully grounded example of independent cinema in all its flourishing glory.
