Bill Gunn (director of Ganja and Hess) teamed up with writer Ishmael Reed to produce what Reed has called "an experimental soap opera," an intimate epic focused on the everyday struggles of a black working-class couple and their friends and family. Originally produced as a pilot for PBS in 1980 but never given a proper release until now, Personal Problems is the result of a bold collaboration between a coterie of major 80's artists.
