Tongues Untied

1989 Rated NR 55m

In this searing documentary, filmmaker Marlon Riggs uses his own and others' stories to reveal the realities of being black and gay in America. Vintage film clips intercut with readings by poet Essex Hemphill accompany tales of gay-bashing, protest movements, drag culture and a memorial for black AIDS victims, all filtered through Riggs's slyly humorous voice. The pointed study originally aired as part of the PBS series "P.O.V."
