This event is hosted by the San Diego Public Library.

Join us for a 30th anniversary screening of the ground-breaking film TONGUES UNTIED by late filmmaker Marlon Riggs. California Newsreel director and colleague of Riggs’ Cornelius Moore who was involved in the film’s production and appeared in the cast will lead the discussion after the film.

Made to “shatter this nation’s brutalizing silence on matters of sexual and racial difference”, this bold and beautiful film combines poetry, performance, and music into a personal and universal statement on the experiences and resulting persecution of Black gay men. Met with a storm of controversy that reached all the way to Congress, Tongues Untied remains a radical act of representation.
