Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Losing Ground is a amusing but standard menage a trois, set in a small college town. The principle difference between this and other such films is that all the characters are African-American. Artist Bill Gunn is married to philosophy professor Seret Scott. She prides herself on being broad-minded and liberal; so why is she so peeved that Gunn is using the gorgeous Maritza Rivera as his model? Although there are no star names, and though it might be well nigh impossible to find, Losing Ground is well worth your while.
