Movie Info

Marlon Riggs's controversial, brilliant and highly political look at racism and homophobia in the United States. Availing himself of a plethora of artistic forms -- including poetry, music, and oral history -- "Tongues Untied" unravels and reveals the dual prejudices that African-American gays must deal with on an everyday basis. This was originally aired on PBS, where it stirred extremely strong reaction throughout the nation. A spellbinding and provocative film.

Audience Reviews for Tongues Untied - The Black Gay Male Experience

I cannot but urge everyone to rediscover this audacious, provocative and essential masterpiece that spoke and still speaks for the black/gay fight against oppression - a wonderfully poetic call to action that remains important as long as silence continues to echo with complicity.
