Looking for Langston

Directed by Isaac Julien
United Kingdom, 1988
Drama, LGBT+, Short

Synopsis

In this lyrical and poetic consideration of the life of revered Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes, film-maker Isaac Julien invokes Hughes as a black gay cultural icon, against an impressionistic, atmospheric setting that parallels a Harlem speakeasy of the 1920s with an 80s London nightclub.
