The spring F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series will present Tongues Untied (1989) on Sunday, March 6, at 2 p.m. in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ. All F.I.L.M. events are free and open to the public. 

When director Marlon Riggs found out he was HIV positive, he was becoming known as a cine-historian of African America--the diagnosis altered his direction. Riggs became one of the leading cine-poets of the generation of gay men who died in a society that didn't seem to care if they had life, much less liberty and pursuit of happiness. Tongues Untied was, and remains, a declaration of independence for Black and Queer.
