FYI for those of you in the Los Angeles area... screenings of a pair of films that I've championed on this blog a number of times in the past (as well as the filmmakers). Well-worth seeing in a theatrical setting, so take advantage.

OUTFEST-UCLA LEGACY PROJECT SCREENING SERIES

On Sunday, June 22, UCLA Film & Television Archive presents a special screening of Brother to Brother (2004) and Tongues Untied (1989), two landmark films by African American directors that boldly expanded the boundaries of queer filmmaking.

Director Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother) will be present in person to discuss the ongoing influence of these works on the 10th anniversary of his film.

Screenings will take place at the Billy Wilder Theater in Westwood Village.

Outfest-UCLA Legacy Project is a collaboration bringing together UCLA Film & Television Archive and Outfest to collect, restore and screen queer film and video.

*Outfest members always receive two-for-one admission at the Billy Wilder Theater box office!

Legacy Project

10th anniversary screening!

BROTHER TO BROTHER

2004

PROD: Jim McKay, Aimee Schoof, Isen Robbins, Rodney Evans.  DIR/SCR: Rodney Evans.  CINE: Harlan Bosmajian.  EDIT: Sabine Hoffmann, Rodney Evans.  CAST: Anthony Mackie, Roger Robinson, Larry Gilliard Jr., Aunjanue Ellis, Duane Boutte.

Rodney Evans’ moving feature film frames dilemmas facing Black gay people with remarkable insight.  Perry Williams uneasily straddles several worlds.  An African American art student, ambivalent about success in a white-dominated sphere, he faces rejection by homophobic classmates, and fetishization from his white lover.  Meeting Bruce Nugent, an older, Black gay artist and poet, and a leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Perry comes face to face with a living legacy of which he is a part, emboldening him to face the future with confidence and pride.

35mm, color, 90 min.

25th anniversary screening!

TONGUES UNTIED

1989

PROD/DIR/CINE/EDIT: Marlon Riggs.  SCR: Marlon Riggs, Joseph Beam, Craig Harris, Reginald Jackson, Steve Langley, Alan Miller, Donald Woods.  CAST: Essex Hemphill, Cornelius Moore, Kerrigan Black, Wayson Jones, David Barron Kirkland. 

Filmmaker Marlon Riggs’ landmark work powerfully advanced the discussion of spaces in history and culture to which Black gay men must lay claim.  Widely viewed on Public Television, the NEA-funded documentary with its surprising combinations of testimonial, performance, nudity, sensuality and humor sent shockwaves through the conservative establishment.  Still powerful in its 25th year, this indispensable work has become a bedrock of political imagination.

Digital video, color, 55 min.

IN PERSON:  Rodney Evans.
