Upcoming Event: RM Sunday Session | Screening Looking for Langston by Isaac Julien
We are delighted to welcome you back to the gallery for a new RM Sunday Session. Upcoming Sunday we will be hosting an one of a kind screening during which we will be screening Isaac Julien’s iconic queer film Looking for Langston.
Looking for Langston is a 1989 British black-and-white film, directed by Isaac Julien and produced by Sankofa Film & Video Productions. It combines authentic archival newsreel footage of Harlem in the 1920s with scripted scenes to produce a non-linear impressionistic storyline celebrating black gay identity and desire during the artistic and cultural period known as the Harlem Renaissance in New York. The film has a runtime of about 42 minutes.
Please note that there are a limited amount of seats available for this event, therefore RSVP is mandatory.
