Personal Problems, an entirely African-American-conceived and produced ensemble drama is the result of a collaboration of a pair of pioneering Black artists: writer Ishmael Reed and filmmaker Bill Gunn. Originally intended to air on public television in 1980, it went unseen for decades; the original tapes have been carefully restored by Kino Lorber and the film is now available in its full-length version for the very first time!

Director: Bill Gunn
Cast: Vertamae Grosvenor, Walter Cotton, Ishmael Reed and Sam Waymon
