"Rarely have I seen a film so amateurish, so accomplished, so distancing, and so alluring all at once...I really hope UCLA’s restoration finds it a new audience, in no small part because they performed monumental work in bringing it back to life. It really looks amazing." — Scott Nye, Letterboxd

Juleen Compton has been a lost figure in the evolution of independent feminist cinema. Well-connected in the New York theater world (she was married to Group Theatre co-founder Harold Clurman), she used money from sideline ventures in real estate and interior design to finance her first film STRANDED, which premiered at Cannes and then virtually disappeared. With a freewheeling, loosely plotted style that connects to both the French and American New Waves, the film stars Compton herself as Raina, an American expatriate who pursues a liberated lifestyle while sailing through the Greek islands with her most recent lover and her gay best friend. Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by Century Arts Foundation. 35mm. (MR)
