Directed by Rodney Evans | 2004

With Anthony Mackie, Roger Robinson, Alex Burns

Taking its title from the incantatory chant which begins Riggs’ Tongues Untied, this luminous, empowering drama stars Anthony Mackie as an art student contending with racism and homophobia who, through a friendship with an older black, gay poet, discovers the hidden histories of the queer African-American artists who came before him. Vividly bringing to life the world and personalities of the Harlem Renaissance—from Langston Hughes to Zora Neale Hurston—Brother to Brother beautifully portrays the shared struggles between generations.

This screening is dedicated to Roger Robinson (1940-2018)

Post-screening Discussion director Rodney Evans
