Looking for Langston (1989)


Isaac Julien's “Looking for Langston” – “A fantasy celebration of high-society gay men during the Harlem Renaissance, with archival footage and photographs intercut. In an elegant bar, tuxedoed men dance and talk. One of them has a dream in which he comes upon Beauty. His visits to the jazz dance club are framed by voices reading the poetry and essays of Hughes and other writers. [Thanks to Tracey Rankin for spotting the source!]
