Catch an exclusive screening of Looking for Langston, a 1989 landmark New Queer Cinema art film that explores the world of Langston Hughes - one of the key figures of the Harlem Renaissance movement and earliest innovators of “jazz-poetry”. Directed by Isaac Julien and produced by Sankofa Film and Video Collective, the film highlights Hughes’ secret world as a black and queer artist. Archival footage and photographs are interspersed with fictional scenes that shift from past to present as in the reimagined Cotton Club scene staged in an 80s London nightclub. This presentation, co-organized by The Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab and The Wolfsonian-FIU, is part of a series of events accompanying The Harlem Renaissance 100: Perspectives and Possibilities exhibit.
