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.
