Thirty years after the release of Tongues Untied, Signifyin’ Works has launched an international celebration of this landmark film. TONGUES UNTIED@30 is a yearlong extravaganza at venues large and small, highbrow and scrappy that will re-investigate and re-imagine the meaning of the film. An eclectic collection of events organized independently and presented across multiple platforms, TONGUES UNTIED @30 will promote film screenings, installations, performances, colloquia, publications, and online hubs envisioned by scores of cultural institutions.
TONGUES UNTIED@30 was launched to critical acclaim with a 9-day retrospective at BAM NY
