Tongues Untied

USA  ·  1989  ·  DCP  ·  Color and Black and White  ·  55'  ·  o.v. English

The canonical avant-garde video about black gay culture, made by Marlon Riggs. Through song, dance, and spoken verse, a visual collage is created of a fiercely independent community that makes no apologies and accepts no substitutes. The montage on the theory and practice of snapping is cinematic sublime.
