"...A bravura display of controlled anger..."

Product Description:

Using poetry, rap, testimony, and performance, director Marlon Riggs documents the homophobia and racism that confront gay black men.

Plot Synopsis:

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.
