WANDA’s theme is elegantly revealed in its first few minutes: we have a woman who simply doesn’t fit within her environment, doesn’t belong anywhere (she’s never shown as having a home of her own), and whose very presence, more often than not, is an eyesore to the men around her (which doesn’t prevent her from being a sex object).” — Bérénice Reynaud

A new restoration of the Barbara Loden masterpiece WANDA (1970) opens in Los Angeles this week. A key work of modern American cinema, this was Loden’s only feature film as a director.

Loden’s son Marco Joachim, and Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte will introduce the screening this weekend at the Aero.
