WANDA
(1970, d Barbara Loden)
Starring Barbara Loden, Michael Higgins

NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION:

For Wanda, Barbara Loden was inspired by an article about Wanda Goranski, an accomplice in a bank robbery who at her sentencing, thanked the judge for her twenty year sentence. At the time of its release, the film raised gender issues and ignited a dialogue amongst working class women and those on the forefront of the feminist movement, well before feminist topics were mainstream.

With its powerful realism, Wanda is among the most formidable directorial debuts in independent cinema. Though it won the Critics’ Prize in Venice in 1970, Wanda achieved little domestic success. In recent years, the film’s reputation has grown.

Barbara Loden began her career as an actress, best known for her role in Splendor In The Grass where she met director and future husband, Elia Kazan. Wanda proved to be the only feature Barbara Loden would direct before her untimely death in 1978.
RESTORATION NOTES:
The UCLA Film & Television Archive holds the original 16mm color reversal camera original A/B rolls and original optical track, which were identified and rescued from a laboratory closure by an archive staff member the day before they were to be destroyed.

The original A/B rolls were blown up to a 35mm preservation internegative. The soundtrack was digitally restored and a new 35mm soundtrack negative was struck. The resulting 35mm negatives serves as the source for a color-graded 35mm viewing print.
