Before better-known female directed narratives of women drop-outs like Wanda and Vagabond, there was the wa y - a h e a d - o f - i t s - t i m e Stranded, the uncompromised independent debut of writer director Compton, who also stars as a young woman making her way across Greece with her lover and gay bestie, drifting into affairs, turning down offers of attachment, and generally doing what she wants, free of the arbitrary punishment of studio-enforced puritanism.

Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by Century Arts Foundation.

Stranded is screening as part of the series UCLA Festival of Preservation. Click here for more info.
