New general release of 'Wanda', written and directed by Barbara Loden

The Film Stage has announced that Wanda, Barbara Loden's American independent 1970 landmark is to return to theatres thanks to production company Janus Films. 'Thanks to the likes of champions Isabelle Huppert and John Waters – as well as Nathalie Léger’s recent book – the film has received a resurgence as of late, and now Janus Films will release it in theaters this summer, followed by a likely release on The Criterion Collection.' Suite for Barbara Loden by Nathalie Léger, was published in the UK by Les Fugitives in March 2015 and by American indie press Dorothy Project in 2016.
