Tongues Untied

Dir. Marlon Riggs
1989, 55min, DCP

 

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.

 
Anthem

Dir. Marlon Riggs
1991, 9min, DCP

 

Pervert the language.” Kinetically edited in the style of a music video, this hip-hop-inflected experimental work issues a proud statement of black gay love and humanity.

 
 
 
The Attendant

Dir. Isaac Julien
1993, 8min, 35mm

 

A museum devoted to the history of slavery becomes a hotbed of queer sadomasochistic fantasy in this provocative reflection on memory and desire by installation artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien.
