Directed by Marlon Riggs | 1989

Made to “shatter this nation’s brutalizing silence on matters of sexual and racial difference,” this bold and beautiful essay film combines poetry, performance, music, and montage into an at once personal and universal statement on the experiences of black gay men and the persecution they face. Met with a firestorm of controversy that reached all the way to Congress, Tongues Untied remains a radical act of representation.

Special thanks to Frameline Distribution
