Moonlight

Dir. Barry Jenkins
With Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Trevante Rhodes.
2016, 111min, DCP

 

The spirit of Riggs courses through Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning instant classic, which beautifully carries on the late artist’s mission: to bring the images and stories of queer black men to the screen. In three heartrending chapters, Moonlight charts the journey of a gay African-American man as he comes of age in Miami, navigating the questions of identity, sexuality, and black masculinity that Riggs so eloquently explored.

 
Affirmations

Dir. Marlon Riggs
1990, 10min, DCP

 

A stirringly poetic portrait of black gay men fighting for visibility and liberation.
