Directed by Isaac Julien
Produced in 1989
Main Language - ENGLISH
Countries & Regions - British Film
Isaac Julien's sumptuous monochrome film is a lyrical and poetic consideration of the life of revered Harlem poet Langston Hughes, whom Julien invokes as a gay cultural icon. Combining archival footage with newly-staged set pieces, fantasy sequences and an imagined love story, the film is a beautiful and ultimately celebratory piece about artistic expression and the nature of black, gay desire.
