Piermont based writer and director Kathleen Collins (1942 – 1988) made two groundbreaking films, both available for streaming: The Cruz Brothers and Miss Malloy (50 minutes; 1980) and the feature film, Losing Ground (1982), which was just selected for the prestigious National Film Registry for their permanent collection and was the opening night film in the Film Society of Lincoln Center series, “Black Independents in New York, 1968-1986”. Both films are set in Rockland County.
