Tongues Untied

Watch the Trailer

PBS Premiere: July 16, 1991


"Marlon Riggs's Tongues Untied rises above the 'deeply personal' — far above it — in exploring what it means to be black and gay. Angry, funny, erotic and poetic by turns ( and sometimes all at once), it jumps from interview to confession, music video to documentary to poem." —Craig Seligman, San Francisco Examiner
