Dir. Rodney Evans | 2004, 94min
With Anthony Mackie, Roger Robinson, Alex Burns

A Q&A with writer/director Rodney Evans and DaShawn Usher, Associate Director, Communities of Color at GLAAD & Founder/Executive Director of MOBI, will follow the film.

Taking its title from the incantatory chant which begins Marlon Riggs’ experimental documentary 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.

Passes provide access to all films + Q&A’s in the program beginning Friday, May 7th at 12am ET and ending Monday, May 10th at 11:59pm ET
